There she goes.......

At 4 o clock this morning Molly was checking her bag onto her flight at Cork airport. She stayed up all night since we had to leave home at 2.30am and decided that she would sleep on the long flight instead.
She should arrive in Nairobi at 6.30pm our time to a whole new experience, 42 degrees, different foods, staying with people she doesn't know, making new friends , meeting the children at the school and generally having a ball!!!!!

I was SOOOO good, I didn't cry!!!! she was so excited going through the gate, she hasn't been out of Ireland on her own before, let alone all the way to Africa, but she will be fine. She will be back in 4 weeks, and I will miss her, but what an amazing opportunity!
As soon as I get a phone call to say she is there safe I will relax a bit.... i'm sure all you Mums out there will understand that.
so that is how our Sunday has been, how about yours??

  1. What a brave girl and what a fantastic opportunity. She will love it. Good on you for not crying! As moms that kinda comes naturally. The time will fly. Hope she has a brilliant time. Talk soon.

  2. Molly and Mum are BOTH brave girls! I can't wait to hear all about Molly's adventures! Did she like the little book you made her to take along?
    I KNOW you will breathe a big sigh of relief when she arrives safely- and I'm proud of you for not crying! I know how hard it is to say goodbye when it's for a while... And my two thousand miles is seeming pretty close compared to the distance you'll be dealing with for a bit! xo
