As it gets closer and closer to us departing my to do list keeps shrinking. This morning I finalized all my lesson plans, my back pocket classroom ideas and finished packing (expect for last minute items). I had a realization this morning, that my nerves are also shrinking and that I feel ready to tackle this adventure head on. I feel like I have had a lot of personal growth in preparing for this trip. I am so excited to see what Chile has in store for me. I really am now most nervous about being able to sleep on the plane and if they have enough coffee to keep me awake for 9 am Spanish classes. Well now I am off to my last day of work for about a month. Thank goodness the time has come. Good Bye Buffalo Here I come Chile.
As I sit here preparing my packing list, getting all my documents together and finishing my lesson plans I realize it is no longer in the months till we leave it is 18 days till we leave. I am extremely nervous being a home body not only leaving the country but the continent. I don't know what I will do with out my Tim Horton's , my dogs, my family and friends but I know the adventure is just out there. I am excited to meet my new host family, make new friends and new memories. Time to let the count down really begin.
