There are only 7 weeks left of school (give or take a couple of days) and they can't go by fast enough!!
It is comforting to know that in 2 months I'll be flinging myself north FOR GOOD! Wow, I sound as if I've been away forever... but really... with this year, I feel like I have been.
And now, two months away from HOME, I am looking back at all the lessons I have learned down here.
Some are hard to swallow (like I've been too soft on my students, and it faults me big time)
Some are inspiring (like I know more than ever what direction I'd like my career to go in!)
Some are heartbreaking (the state of mind of many of my students)
Some are heartwarming (knowing I appreciate, cherish and crave my friends and family and the support and love they give me even far away)
There are more, and I likely won't realize many until I'm home and can share my experience and grow from it. These next two months will feel long and hard to take at times, but I'm hoping that the light at the end of this tunnel will keep me up and keep me going.
I love and miss you all so very much. I can't wait to see you again!
