The last day with (a possibly unhealthy attachment to) my students from last year

The last day with (a possibly unhealthy attachment to) my students from last year


I guess because this school year has been so difficult, I’ve continued to visit my old class.


I’ve tutored some of my students this year. And I’ve wished I could still been their teacher.


They have a great new teacher. A friend of mine. They are in great hands. Thank you Tr. Shannon for all you’ve done for them this year!

But I have missed them.


Yesterday was the last time though.
I went and played and sang songs with them.


It was so fun to hear them talking about Turkey.  Truly wonderful that Tr. Shannon had taught them about Turkey!  They were excited to hear about new students I will be teaching.


I gave them all my email and a request to be their pen pal.  It will be great to hear from them.  I love when I hear from my students from Washington middle school back in the states!


Amazingly I didn’t feel sad, but rather empowered to know that these wonderful children have such a great start in their lives.


Then I had my last tutor session.
And then I went to the last wonderful dinner.


So happy with her new bunny puppet from a trip to the zoo20140618_17023620140618_170823

The fact that Tiger now has a shark is truly scary.  And that shark’s teeth were actually sharp!!  I have a cut on my leg from them.   Can we rethink the design of children’s toys here people??20140618_170636 20140618_170735

I felt a sincere need to bite his hand at least once so he’d understand it actually hurt……   but I didn’t.

Dinner was really yummy.  I need to look up the name of the place, but it was all vegetarian food and they were very very accommodating to my dairy allergy!!20140618_184121 20140618_184129 20140618_184624Seriously the best pumpkin soup I have ever eaten.  Hands down.  The best.20140618_185831 20140618_190414 20140618_190515 20140618_191155 20140618_191341 20140618_191413 20140618_191421 20140618_192438 20140618_194012One of THE cutest things ever was watching Tiger try to follow my example of twirling my spaghetti.   He had only one noodle, but he was twirling so very carefully.  I have video, but am still entirely too webilliterate to figure out how to upload it.

so you’ll have to picture it


PS,  Still falling,

faster and more happily every day.
