Today is our last day on this beautiful island and it is very upsetting. We just left the school where we have been working and it was really hard to say goodbye to all of the kids. It took about 30 minutes to get out of each classroom because the kids would no let go of our clothes as we were trying to leave. We have built up a bond with the children that is unlike anything else I have experienced. Before this trip, I never really worked with kids that much and these past two weeks have taught me a lot. As we were walking away a few of the children were crying and that was very hard to see. In addition to finishing our time at the school, we also finished painting the room we had been working on. That was a great feeling to be done with that after many hours of work on those walls. I am using the internet at a shop and they are closing soon, so I have to get off. I will write another post when I can log on again.
