    Well it is almost my last day. And my kids in Ms. K's class knew I did quilting so they got together and brought in some old scraps of off-white fabric and they used some fabric pens on them and made me some fabric blocks today. I got half of them today and I get the other half tomorrow. I just hope I don't cry in front of them when I leave tomorrow. Anyways here are some of the wonderful designs and messages.

    I think I may have gotten a job. Just waiting to hear back. I know they called one of my references today. In passing in the hall she told me they had. So I take that as a good sign.

    Henry it is just wonderful. Those blocks show how big of an impact you made on those kids. I hope you hear back soon on your new job. The waiting is the hardest part.

    I'll admit I got a little teary eyed. I get the rest of them tomorrow and I can't wait to see them.

    Those blocks are wonderful. Every time you look at them they will remind you that you made an impact on so many young lives. Good luck on your new job. All my kids have had a least one teacher or teachers aid who touched their lives and made an impact. My son still visits his special teacher who has since become his friend. Its hard to leave the kids you care about, but think of all the new kids you can reach. You are a special person with so much to give. I wish you the best.

    Those are sweet, beautiful precious gifts from the heart. I'll bet it's nice to have a treasure like those!

    The most heart-wrenching one is the one that asks you not to leave!

    Wow! What a nice thing for them to do. There was a lot of thought and effort put into them, a testament to how much you meant to them.
