The last day

All of the mixed emotions. Tomorrow is my last day in my preschool and I’m sad to say goodbye to my teachers and my students! I’m not surprised at all to say that I’m sad it’s ending. I knew as soon as I started that I would just love these kids. I love children and the hugs and the talking to them and the stories are things that I adore about children. They have such wonderful thoughts and they’re so pure and beautiful! I don’t understand how anyone can not love absolutely everything about working with them.

I love them all so much.  Even though they’ll forget me, I’ll never forget how much of an impact they’ve made on my life. Cheesy and corny yes but all of it is very very true.

I love to write, I love quotes and I love reading. But physically writing is just terrible. I have the worst hand writing and I get bored/tired. So as we were pursuing the isle of notebooks I was once again struck with the thought of, “just start a blog”. Now I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for some time and I finally gave in.
