What a pathetic beginning

fezThat was a sad initial post.  Almost half of the students have returned home.  I’m receiving farewell emails and cards daily.  The ‘Thank You’s’ are a fantastic way to get paid as a volunteer.
 I’ve had a HUGE problem with kids in the last few days.  I’m up to 16 pages of emails in a 9 point font.  Some of our students tour the US at the end of their year in the states.  Generally, the West Coast students come East to see Boston, New York, Niagara Falls, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC.  The East Coast students go to Disneyland, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.  Culture vs Party!  A few of my darlings were booted off their trip, and it’s an international incident.  They’re innocent!  No, they just got caught.  Get over it.  

Exchange today: Fez: “I wanna go to the beach with my friends.”
Me:  “Ok, where?”
Fez:  “Baltimore.”
