Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

 Yesterday, we said goodbye to one of my ESL students. He came to study with me last September and the time has come for him to end his studies on the Island. For the past eight months, he has been a regular fixture in Little One's life. I sometimes think she believes that he is her brother.  They play together, she argues with him, he spoils her, keeps her occupied...and they have become best buddies.

It was so sad to say goodbye.
 She really loves her buddy, DW!
 We took the students on a field trip to Bridal Veil Falls the day before our student left. Little One got to accompany us on our trip.
 P.S. Isn't her backpack just adorable? You can win one on my reviews blog!

~aww, I feel sad for you all. DW was so awesome with RA, and I know how much you love him. Thanks to the internet you will be able to keep in touch! It's always so difficult to lose valuable people in our lives. (((HUGS)))
