Don't Blink-4 Months and Counting


It seems like just yesterday I sat in my parents living room and dropped the bomb on them that I was going to be moving to Australia in ten months. Here we are in the middle of March and I have less than 4 short months until I leave. It's crazy how fast time can pass. 

This week my busy kindergartners have had me at my wits end. Days like those make it easy to wish the time I have left with them away. But, I realized something as I was journaling last night, Monday starts my last 9 weeks marking period not just with them but as a teacher. That puts things into perspective. In just a few short weeks I will no longer walk into a classroom every morning full of energetic kindergarteners with their shoe laces untied, remains of that mornings breakfast on their face, arms that cannot wait to give me a hug, and little high pitched voices that are eager to tell me a story. 

Just four short months a season will end and a new one will begin. It is easy to get so excited about moving to Australia and everything that is to come and miss the very season I am in. It has already gone by way to fast. So I am dedicating the next four months to embracing every second of what I've come to know of as "normal." I am spending every second I can with my friends {:even if this means tagging along with them to the grocery store:} and family. I am going all in to embrace the good and bad days with my 22 little friends. I am simply not going to blink, wish, or wonder mindlessly through this short season I left here because the reality of how quickly it is coming to an end it starting to sink in.
