What do you do when your best friend moves away and you are only two years old....
You give him a BIG, big Hug. :)It was heartbreaking watching these two best friends say goodbye to each other. Zenock loves his friend "Hay." In fact, we love Hay's entire family. We met them when we first moved to Texarkana and were so excited when we moved within a couple miles of each other here in Virginia. We knew the time to say goodbye would come all too soon. We have spent almost every holiday for the last two years with Hay's family, celebrated Birthdays, graduations, good Thai/Cambodian food, friends, and just celebrated for no reason. His mom has kept me from completely going crazy this last year, letting me tag along with her or just hang out at her house. We honestly aren't sure what we are going to do without them!
Like, I said... Zenock loves his friend Hay. When we get in the car, I hear:
"Go see Hay?"
When we go to church and I tell Zenock he can go play with the kids, he says:
"Play with Hay?"
When I tell him we are going to have a party, he gets so excited and says:
(Get the idea?)
He loves when Hay comes to play... I love when Hay comes to play. It is the only time, when Zenock completely ignores me and what I'm doing. They go in Zenock's room and shut the door on me and all I hear is laughter. They have so much fun together.
Did I mention, Hay has 2 brothers and a sister... We love them just as much... (their parents aren't too bad either.) I think Zenock honestly thinks he belongs or is part of their family. :)
I told Zenock on Sunday that we were going to make cookies and take them to Hay. That is ALL he talked about. He told his Grandpa, Grandma, and Aunt Kris who were visiting that he was going to take, "Hay cookies, knock door, Hay cookies, knock door" over and over.
When we finally did take Hay cookies, Zenock was so excited, he saw Hay's house as we pulled up and yelled... "HAAAYYYY!" Saying goodbye, was so so sad... after giving each other big hugs, Hay stood on his porch and waved and yelled, "Bye, Zenock, Bye, Zennie!" over and over. As we drove off, Zenock waved and yelled, "Bye Hay" and blew him a kiss.
Seriously torture for Mom's to watch.
We just might have to arrange a few vacations over the years to visit Hay and his family.
We sure are going to miss them, not sure what we'll do with out them, but wish them luck and are excited to hear all about their new adventures! :)
