Just voted for the first time ever! I came all the way from Pune just to experience this particular rite of passage- I haven’t been in the country during elections since I turned 18 :D
Also, I’ve missed the Indian mango season for the past five years, which just makes all my current mango ODing that much sweeter.
It’s the little things :)
I miss my little monkeys already. School’s been out for barely a week; how am I supposed to survive the next seven weeks without my students?!
I was just remembering how, when I walked into class with huge stacks of holiday homework, they all started clapping and cheering. And when I explained that the homework drills were differentiated according to each student’s levels, they cheered louder.
This was after dire warnings by pretty much EVERYONE- my family, friends, even other TFI Fellows- that my kids would feel overwhelmed and burdened by so much holiday homework, that they would resent us for it. Yet, as a kid, I always welcomed holiday homework because I was inevitably bored after the first few weeks of play- and I’m glad my kids expressed the same sentiment.
Sigh. They drive you up the wall and push you to your limit, but children make everything worthwhile :) Gonna head back to Pune and spend next week at the community center, hanging out with the kids who’re still in town. Most of them spend their entire break in their native villages though.
