It has been a really emotional day for all on the Summer Camp team. We have all had such an amazing time and feel so privileged to be a part of it. I know that we have all taken something personal from this time with the kids and have truly been overwhelmed by the love they have for us. 

We spent the last morning on the beach, making sure we spent as much time as possible with our new friends and trying to make sure they all knew how much we love them. We asked Bobby what he liked best about Summer Camp and he replied 'EVERYTHING!' 

It has been really hard to think about the homes that these kids, who we love so much, will go back to. Many have said they live in a room with their eight brothers and sisters plus parents. Others would normally stay at Lipnitsa school during term time. We dread to think where they will be going back to until school term begins again. Putting faces and personalities to the suffering they go through is heart wrenching for us. 

Despite the sadness we had an amazing last day with them. We are all dreading saying goodbye tonight. Emma and Grace are consoling themselves by singing the Spice Girls (yes the Spice Girls) song Goodbye. We have already had a few kids come up to us crying, saying they don't want us to go. While it is great to see that we made such an impact on them it is heart breaking for us to see them so upset. 

Video to follow soon!

Well goodbyes and a seven/eight hour coach journey awaits us. Cue the music...
