Ruby is missing her friends from NL. All those little girls she used to run around with, make tea-parties, share cookies, fight over one thing, and then hug and carry on playing once again. I'm not sure whether showing her photographs of them all still having fun together back in NL is too sad for her or whether it keeps her memories of the fun they had together alive?
But Ruby is not one to hang around! We visit a park almost every day. On the way she will ask 'Will there be friends there?'. Just as soon as we arrive, and she spies other children, she calls out 'Shall we be friends?' and that's it. More often than not she runs off with someone new, playing hide-and-seek, up and down the slide, laughing and playing. And when it comes to going home, she ALWAYS says 'Would you like to come to my house?'. I don't think it will be too long until she has another litle group of friends to share her days with.
If only it were that easy for all of us.
