Ok, it's Friday. I've said good-bye to two classes of second years (grade 11s) this week. It's not fun. I has taken me a long time to get these guys to warm up to me. To not jump whenever they meet me around a corner or to not repeat everything I say and actually have a conversation with me. I was there when these guys started Grade 10 - they have grown a lot -both physically and socially. I hope that I've had some influence on the latter.
My only consolation is that I'll still be around until July and will hopefully be in Japan next March when they graduate. I wish I could introduce all of you to them. They put a smile on my face everyday - they're friendly, funny, awkward, goofy, smart, not so smart, shy, lazy, energetic - yeah, they're teenagers and I love them all.
