My summer plans have a been a little bit up in the air and have changed several times. It looks like things are finally coming together (although you never know when something might change again).

August~ Visits with friends and family north of Virginia Beach
September~ Visits with friends and family south of Virginia Beach
October (first weekish)~ Leave for Uganda (traveling with several teammates :))
3 1/2 days, that's how long I have left as a 4th grade teacher at Thalia. I'm sure I'll cry on Friday...tears of sadness and tears of joy. When teachers leave Thalia they get to leave their handprint outside of their classroom door. Today as the art teacher came to get me so I could leave my handprint a wave of emotions came over me...sadness, excitement for the next phase of life... I've learned so much from this class of 9 &10 year olds, and they will forever remain precious to me.
