We got along really well, better than I ever could have thought.
I ended my final day with our Christmas concert which was totally successful and super fun. The kids even got me stuff! They got me two bouquets of flowers, plus a card that a ton of them signed plus a bag of m&ms. Tyson also got me a bouquet of flowers and some chocolates (10 of which I ate in one sitting today. It happens.) So grateful!!
Near the end of the concert they did this cheering thing for me and clapped for what felt like 10 minutes and I stood there feeling like a dork. Kind of like when you have to stand up in front of a room full of people while they sing happy birthday to you. You know? And you can't exactly sing to yourself or sit down so you just stand there smiling 'til your cheeks start to twitch. Yeah, it was like that. Really nice of them though.
The signatures on the card was probably my favorite part of it all. There were so many "I'll miss you's" and "you were the best student teacher ever" and "you are so cute". It made me feel really good. Never mind that half the boys told me they loved me and would date me if I wasn't married (good thing they don't know how old I REALLY am).
But then the icing on the cake was this:
In case you were curious what we sounded like (and how my backside looks in black) here's a little video from the concert. This was the last choir which actually combined the A Capella and the Chamber choir. There are about 150 singing right now which I thought was way fun. I love huge choirs! We are singing Fum Fum Fum by Mack Wilberg.
