Saying Goodbye

Yesterday was my last day with my Jamestown students (aren't they cute?). After a brief lesson on the country of South Africa, I had them write letters to a South African student that included information about themselves, what they liked about living in Michigan, and questions to ask their pen pal. I plan to bring these letters with me to share and will hopefully bring letters back home for them as well. The kids were very excited and some of them even taped on a "squishy," a little animal pencil topper that the students love to collect and trade (a big sacrifice for a 4th grader!). They also made me pictures and cards and signed a yearbook for me. It was a day full of hugs and well wishes, and I miss them already!

Tomorrow I plan to go to church with my family, visit my Nana, and have lunch with the South Africa group and our families before take-off at 3:30.

Thank you for all of your support and prayers! See ya later, U.S.A. :)
