Primary School Farewell

Yesterday still feels like a dream to it's not really happening.  The farewell ceremony for the leaving staff took place.   It's so hard to believe today will be my last day of work as a school counselor for a while.   I love what I do so it's difficult to imagine life without it.   I also love the people I work with and the caring community of which I am now a part.  These people have raised my children with me and have creaated an environment that has deepened our family's experiences in Fiji.   For all of this, I am incredibly thankful and just a little sad too.  I stayed until the end last night soaking it all in.  I came home and read all the notes from the staff and looked at my beautiful farewell gifts- and still it doesn't feel real.    Maybe one day when I look at the pictures and I'm all alone without work it will really sink in..... My favorite roro from the lovo!

Whoa, what a week!

Wow.   It's been a week.   It's been a big one.  I'm kind of emotionally exhausted.   It's all good things- but I'm really starting to feel the impact of the last times for things.    Two Fridays ago we started the afternoon with a fun 5k at the embassy.  I ran the whole way but the girls walked/ran and had a great time!  They liked the ice cream more than anything else I guess.  start of the run enjoying the last bite of ice cream Following the run, some of us went to a cocktails and canapes night at the USP training restaurant, Pacific Fusion.   We ended up going out dancing afterwards which is a rare occurrence, but always one of my favorite things to do!  The rest of the weekend we celebrated Andie's bday early, had a few play dates, went on a LONG run and caught up on cleaning the house, blog, etc.    Nice place to catch up on blog Play date potion making such good friends
