At last Spring?!?!

We did a school outing today at a park near the school. It was the second day with sunshine although it was blowing hard.
I managed to take some photos!

No matter how hard I tried I couldn't stop myself from crying while at the day trip after hearing the news that today my mum's best friend and life long family friend Despina died at 66. She was the best person I ever knew. She took care of our family when we came immigrants back in 1970 in this city. We children played all together and she, a young widow, helped my parents settle down. Her daughter Athanasia, my best childhood friend died at the age of 19 and she was devastated after that! Knowing a person for 42 years of your life is ....really a long time! Good bye Despina; you are going to meet your beloved Athanasia, your sweet angel daughter at last!
