Lucille left this morning, at 5:30am. The family woke up to say their last goodbyes. Bound for Beijing, it was incredibly sad. Especially for Karen. Luci, we miss you already, Karen regrets not giving you a hug at the cab. You were always so awkward with it and we never really hug often, but that might be the last time I see you in a long long .. long time.
On Thursday, Craig is leaving and then in another week or so, the rest of the girls will also be leaving. But we made a pact to have tea or roomdrinks at least once 3-5 years, to maintain our strong friendships, to live in the same seniors’ home or dwelling when we’re 70 years old and to just be there for each other when we need it most.
House elections says in the summer of 2010, Leo will be President (last president of Stephenson House!!), Karen is Treasurer and Jorge is GM.
Craig, Andrew, Jorge, Leo, Liam, Emily, Laura, Joe and especially Lucille, living at Stephenson House this year has truly been, without exaggeration one of the happiest and most influential years of our lives. Thank you, your friendship and support meant the world.
From now on, this blog will serve as a place for ALL of Stephenson House’s 2009-2010 members to post their summer adventures and life updates. Please do so liberally! Pictures! Skype! Email!
Stay in touch. Remember us little people when you’re all successful in life…
