Today I wrote up my goodbye letter to my families. It was not an easy letter to write. These kids are the hardest part of my job, but also the part I will miss the absolute most. I can go anywhere and work on a computer or make lesson plans, but these kids will only be here. I know that it will hit me hard when it comes time to say goodbye for good, but for now I am doing okay.
After nap time I will be telling them that I am leaving. I’m not expecting them to understand, at least not right away. But the explaining will be hard. Telling them that we only have two more weeks together. Explaining to them that I will not be back that following Monday. Yes, I will try and come visit, but it will never be the same. All things will change on the 25th and there will be no looking back, only forward. At least that’s what I’m telling myself now.
