A blog about the
coming of our lovely friend Aunty Libby by Musyoka
It was on Friday when everyone was
returning to the Happy House family from home visits that we found that
everyone who stayed at home had gone to the airport to pick our friend
Aunty Libby .
We said to the aunty who was on duty
that we had come back home safely we ran and changed our clothes . And
we were told by the aunty that we should get ready to welcome our friend back
to the family again and we and we did as the aunty had told us to so when
they had arrived we started singing welcome song to her so that we may make her
feel welcomed. Then on Saturday we gave her a very big surprise with a party.
