An Open Letter To Ye Ye and Nai Nai

Each of the girls have written their grandparents separate letters, but I wanted to let everyone know how grateful we are for their kindness over the past three months! We have a new relationship with Ye Ye and Nai Nai that could not have been duplicated with yearly visits, and that we will always be grateful for. We can’t wait to visit them again, either here on the mainland or on their beautiful garden paradise.
Ye ye and Nai Nai,

You provided us with a refuge full of love, experiences we’ll never leave behind, teaching that will always bless us in our life to come and friends that we hope to see again soon! There have been quite a few tears shed over the last week because we miss you dearly! We miss beach breaks, movie nights, Monday night burgers, cooking lessons and hugs at church. We miss the kindness of the Hawai`ian people, the warm sun, the even warmer sand, boogie boarding and playing with Koa.

Xuxu misses working with Ye Ye and hugging Koa, Star misses helping Nai Nai in the kitchen and playing in “Terabithia”, Mouse misses cuddling with Ye Ye and telling Nai Nai stories, and Pie misses the the hugs from both and of course, the beach (she asks at least once a day!) I miss having adults to talk with every day, Nai Nai’s shoulder, the birds in the morning and the humidity! The only thing we don’t miss is the mosquitoes.

Thank you Ye Ye and Nai Nai! We’ll never be able to repay you for what you’ve done for us! We love you!
