I tried to give a little speech about how much I loved their children and how hard it will be to give them away to a new teacher, but I bust into tears. I think they got the message though :)
Then it was time for the DVD! I continued to cry through that as well! I looked out to see a sea of mothers crying also.. it made me feel much better! Then we dug in to the yummy food and took pictures in the hollywood photo booth!
After the kids were gone, I looked around the room and tried to tell myself that as hard as it is to say goodbye it is my job to make them see that they have learned everything they can from me and now it is time for them to soar into second grade! This class is a special group. No one will ever quite have my heart like they do!
Wherever you go.. My love will find you!
