You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

... br> oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
hello, hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello hello



The good thing about still living in Rochefort is that I will be able to see some teachers that I have met, like Lydia and Caroline who I get along really well with. We will continue to go out for lunch or supper together every now and then and a really great thing is that I will be able to continue ...

They keep the mom company and they are very friendly little guys. In fact, they were all the way at the other end of the field when we went out to see them, all you had to do was call out to them and they came a running, and boy do they ever run ...
