In other news, since I quit my teaching job kind of later in the summer, I've been at school helping the new teacher get situated. A couple days ago, I saw some of last year's 7th graders and they just kept saying how much they were going to miss me! And then the teachers had a good-bye meeting for me and they said seriously some of the nicest things anyone has ever told me. I FEEL SO LOVED!!! I mean, the support of my family and friends means the world to me, but to have colleagues saying that they're proud of you for what you're doing - oh my goodness!
So the countdown is at 17 days! Eek! I just can't wait to get there!!
