Happy May 1st!

That means we have about 100 days ’til our new life begins in Qatar.

Darryl, “It’s May 1st, did you know that?”

Me, “Happy May 1st!”


Me, “Wait, May 1st!  Oh my God, that means…”

That means we have about 100 days ’til our new life begins in Qatar.  It also means I’ve let an entire month go by without acknowledging my person of the month of April.  It also means, time is really flying.  I can’t believe it’s May 1st.

There is so much I want to blog about, but I’ve truly been so busy, I haven’t realized how much time has passed since I signed my contract.

Wednesday was my last day teaching a class in North America.  Two years ago, I was teaching 1st grade.  Here is a picture from my class.


A year ago I was teaching 5th grade.  Here is a picture of of us on a field trip.


This year, I taught college students.  Each time I got a new class, I forgot to take a picture with them.  Well, not this last class.  I was happy that most of the young ladies I taught in my first class, were also the same ones I taught in my last class, different subject of course. They really are full of personality and they were a great group of woman.  I hope they stick with their studies and go on to pursue higher degrees in education.  I walked into what was our last class, to a bouquet of fruit flowers and a balloon, that said, “We will miss you.” I got all teary eyed. They also gifted me with two visa gift cards and two greeting cards.  I will miss them too.  Here are some pictures of us.
