Well, yesterday finally came, and with it I finished my final term of teaching at my school. I’ll still be training and working with the school until May, but it was really strange “giving up” my classroom. As we moved schools last year, I have been the only teacher in that room, and I chose the layout, the decorations… I have all sorts of props and materials organized by month… And most of all, I have two years worth of beautiful children that I fell in love with.
Chad and I both got flowers from our students, so our dining room table looks like a little flower shop! They are so beautiful, and bring a lovely fresh scent to our apartment. The parents in my class also made a photo album for me, as well as a pretty little cupcake with my name on it!
Today Chad had Saturday school, so I surprised him by cleaning the apartment and coming to his campus with Starbucks! I had never been to Akashi Park before, so we went for a nice long walk.
After getting groceries (it’s much cheaper to buy them out in Akashi than in Sannomiya!), we headed home. Here’s the view from our apartment with the weather when we got there:
Haaaa~~~I can’t tell you how good it feels to be on vacation, even if I have to catch up on some work! Going to try to relax as much as possible, and enjoy my time left in Japan.
