This week we talked about Fall and things that change. We were blessed with beautiful weather this week, and so we played outside in the yard. With the older kids, we also talked about things that don't change with the seasons, like good friendships. Then with the younger kids we also learned to say "thank you" when someone gives you something. I want to thank all of you for your support and friendships. I have had momentary battles with being homesick and feeling overwhelmed with work. Then I get an email or a card or a package from a friend back home, and I feel you here with me. I miss you all, and I want to thank you for letting me know that your friendships will endure through my time away from home.
I'm just about to send out the second issue of my newsletter that comes through the snail mail. If you didn't receive the first one and you want to be on my mailing list, just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your address. Unfortunately, I left my CPC directory in OK. I had it packed, but somehow it didn't make it. So, for some of you, I just don't have your contact information. I'm sorry. I would love to send you a copy of the short newsletter with details about the classes and my cultural experiences.
