This was the hard part. Saying goodbye to a campus is hard. Saying goodbye to a neighborhood is hard. But saying goodbye to friends is the hardest.
This sweet friend from Poland is moving on. His mom cried as she hugged me, saying that they had enrolled him in a school like ours in his new city. She said this school had for the first time brought God into their home.
These twins from Jordan cried on the last day, begging dad that they not move away. (On dress up days, one was always a superhero, one was always a princess. You can guess which one Big Ben played with the most!)
Middle School goodbyes are rough, too. These girls go deep with each other quickly.
