I thought that I could never love any kids like I loved my first class, but I'm realizing that I was wrong. I realized it on the first day of school. They are so darn sweet! And so far they have had wonderful behavior! Today was the start of the second week of school, but it was only my fourth day with my kids, since I took off Thursday and Friday to be in Jess's wedding in Lansing, Michigan. It was a whirlwind trip, and right now I am exhausted, sick, and without a suitcase...but it was worth it. I had a great time!
Now I must buckle down and get things done. This year is already feeling different. There are new teachers (and they're all great!). I have new roommates (and they're great, too!). But I'm not tutoring Alvaro anymore, and once I get this schoolyear under control, I feel like I'll have more time on my hands than I should. I am still wanting to find a place to serve in my free time... especially now that I am less stressed about the whole teaching thing. Pray that I can get involved somewhere!
Well, I would love to post pictures and update you some more, but it is time to grade and plan.
I miss everyone!
