After spending the Fall with us, Elin was now heading back to Sweden to continue on with her life, which is going to be amazing. We had dinner with the Lees and watched Star Wars together on Friday. On Saturday, we exchanged gifts and went to Ramen Parlor before dropping Elin off at the airport.
This time, Lucas was much more composed. When Ala left, I observed that he’s learning that these departures aren’t necessarily goodbyes. I think the kids are confident they will see Elin again (we are, too).
We’ll miss you, Elin. Best wishes in everything.
On Sunday, June 5th, about 30 Carey dads joined us for our 5th annual pay-to-play fundraiser for the school. Some things were dialed up a notch, including Adam’s beautiful new beef brisket. Justin needed three grills to cook his amazing pork ribs (his Weber and two BGEs – thanks, Posse). Grace again did almost all the work on our end. She had to fly to Singapore the night before and crushed as much as she could before she left. My mom gets the assist for finishing the sides day-of. I did personally massage each piece of Korean Kalbi, so I’m not completely useless.
Thanks, everyone, for another great event. We still have a few more good years in us. Until next year.
