Here's the realization Jenna, the other colegio English teacher, and I came to the other day:
Oh my gosh. We only have about one more week of real actual teaching left.
WHAT? Where has this year gone? This last partial is absolutely crazy and just when it seems like everything should be winding down, it's all winding up. Right now we're getting ready to write Sponsor Letters (which is no easy feat with Kindergarten and 1st graders who are still struggling with the concept of words in a whole different language), Field Day with the 1st-6th graders, Missions Week with the 7th-9th graders, review for exams, Awards Days for the school and colegio, and then exams, all in the next month! Not to mention a dental team will be here pulling kids out to work on their teeth one week (praise God!).
So with all that said, can I just ask you to pray? Pray for all the craziness that will be going on at the school in the next few weeks, pray for the kids, and pray for me and my fellow teachers, that we will keep our sanity and focus.
This year is going by in a flash, but it has been so great. Excited for all the experiences this last month will hold, and all the ones that are to come next year!
