Starting off June right…bittersweet…

I have been reluctant to describe my feelings this month of June, as so much has kept crashing against my memory bank – I should say emotional bank as the number of experiences I have tried to come to terms with is beyond any words.  Graduation on such a beautiful day, and an amazing ceremony, with so many hugs, Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 10.17.51 PMsmiles, Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 10.15.08 PMScreen Shot 2013-06-07 at 10.18.16 PM and a Maraichi Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 10.18.30 PMto end it in style, the day was PERFECT.  An amazing bunch of students in seeing my first ASF graduation class and being so attached to them, more than I ever realized.   I know I am in the right place.  Just after recovering from that experience, we went into Junior, Sophomore, and freshmen awards.  VERY exciting again to see some major individuals ranging from grades, to club activities (YES Repentino.)

Seeing a new staff, standing room only of 35+ students interested in being new Repentino. Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 10.27.48 PMstaff this year, a rush of emotions take over in seeing the fact that we have come so far in 2 years, so incredibly far…the new year will bring so much sooooo much!

Also TODAY, Seaford High students graduate, Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 8.33.29 PM Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 11.11.17 PM Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 4.43.38 PM Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 8.44.26 PMand I see myself putting the last remnants of my Delaware past well, in the past as these students I knew during my time there, moving forward into the future.  Yes, the whole experience is bitter sweet, yet, part of how we change for the better.  So much to say how amazing this all has been yet, so excited to see what will become of these amazing individuals in the future  🙂

I keep thinking how amazing it would be to have everyone sit down together, Mexico ASF, Seaford High, for a huge summer picnic, that would be one amazing experience! I am so lucky to be here, and have these amazing people surrounding me.  Now we get to say goodbye to staff that will be leaving to other international waters, and while sad, it will be exciting to see them start new adventures!

Tomorrow I get to spend my afternoon with two wonderful graduated ladies, and well, since it is a SECRET, I can say no more until tomorrow….EXCITED!  June has been one of the best I can remember, yes, bittersweet but great.

Don’t forget to check out the new additions to the book review page and restaurant page, always goodness found on those pages.  🙂

Heres to June!  🙂
