Good-Bye Small Town

Well, the day has finally arrived.

Good-bye Small Town.

Good-bye big shrimp.


Good-bye big shrimp's shiny girlfriend.

Good-bye monkeys

and turtles.


And good-bye Brother Pech,

Ms. R,


and K-squared's mom.

I will miss you all.

I think Julio (5 yrs old) summed up everyone's feelings on moving yesterday when he told me:

"Mom, I want to do two things. Stay here and move."

I know just what he means.

Great summary, Julio! I'm glad the internet is everywhere so we don't have to say good bye!

K-squared's Mom said...

Only 1 day gone and Carmen seems so much different!!! I hope you had a pleasant trip. We miss you guys insanely and my son is asking when we are going to your house to play. Give it to Julio to hit the nail on the head.

Awwww, bwaaaaah. "Stay here and move", Julio is just like his mom, he rocks!

Mr and Mrs Shrimp, monkeys, turtles, Bro. Pech, Ms R, Ropey-topeys, crazy bath situation, lizards, rich friends, green pasta with cherry on top, tortillas, chicken feet, yellow dogs eating trash, sink holes, kids haircuts, The family un-fun center, cenote swimming...good times, good times.
Adios Small Town
