Just before leaving for the airport, my dad gave the kids some "angpow money". He had let ds1 earn the money for different things over the week, I am not sure what.
But ds1 got slightly more than 100 yuan. And he was so thrilled with it!!
ds2 is very funny. He still has no concept of money. When asked by my dad what would he prefer, the 100 bill or the 50, he chose the 50. Silly boy.. so he ended up with considerably less than ds1. However, in terms of number of coins and notes, he had more, and he thought he was better off than ds1!
The kids insisted on sending the grandparents off on their bikes. They each got farewell hugs.
Then they lined themselves up to wave and shout goodbye as my parents got into the taxi.
Taxi moving off and the waving and shouting begun... :-)
It'll be some time before we meet again! Sigh, saying goodbye is never easy...
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
