well last few items are tidied up...just had breakfast (it's 7 am here)...got back from work at about 530am
Had to say goodbye to my students----it truly was bittersweet ---- I am so looking forward to coming home but will miss these guys - they are an awesome bunch!! My class was really good to me - and we really enjoyed ourselves! They taught me Tagalog - or at least a few words that is....They are so kind - never a bad word -- it was truly refreshing to teach these guys!
Thank you so much Glad(sweet Glad--always a smile!), Megz(who I can fit in my luggage she's so tiny! LOL), Carl (Carol - lol), Nina (or Paula!-- beautiful Paula!), Jay(my Tagalog instructor and "morning chat buddy"), Leo (Leonides - daddy!), Tasha (the artist!), Cielo(Maria...the "spokesperson"), Johan (my "whiteboard helper" you could say---and who tried to get me on TV!! we weren't succesfful - I don't think the Filipinos were ready for me!) and of course Andrei (Alejandre...pronounced - AL-EH-AN-DREY....with a real "breath-y" voice..lol - who tells me he will "take care" of my girls...I don't think so...LOL) I have been so blessed to meet you all...
These guys made my 5 weeks fly by - along with Travis and his class of course! Thank you so much!
I cannot wait to come home and see my family and friends!!
