Today I said Aloha to King Intermediate for the last time. I am SO glad to be done, but I was surprised at how sad I got when saying goodbye to the kids. They were swarming me with hugs, leis, and cards. It was so great and totally made all 20 weeks worth it.

Here is a pic of me and my favorite class

Next up:

Selling Suzie tomorrow (there is a 99% chance that I will cry and chase the car up the street)
Saying goodbye to Oahu

I thought I would be ready to go home, but lately I have been so sad about leaving the island. Hawaii will always be a part of me. I already miss the ocean, our friends, our shack, our one horse town, and so much more. Luckily our futures are bright. I'm excited for what we have to come.

Congrats on finishing your student teaching! That must have been a wildly tough and rewarding experience. Seriously though, those kids look like they required a lot of your energy. I loved reading your post on their lingo; I remember some of those phrases from our Laie days.

Ah that's a cute picture. Leaving Hawaii will be hard and it will always be a part of you guys. Say good bye to suzie for me! Enjoy Thailand if I don't talk to you guys before then!

Ahhh, Miss, don't leave us too!!! We are so excited for your bright futures too, even if it comes between our friendship!!! Haha jk...Aloha Oe, Aloha Oe

p.s. I really did cry when I had to leave my car.
