My first blog post (who's got my camera?)

Welcome to my blog...I love that word, "blog." Say it out loud. It sounds so silly. And yet, now I have one.

The purpose of The Wild and Absolutely True Adventures of Meg is to keep my friends and family updated about what I'm doing when I get to England. Just remember that I may not post much here before leaving, unless I have a pre-departure story to tell. Once I arrive in England, I have no idea when I will get my internet junkie paws on a computer. It will be a priority, let me assure you.

My first story:

Today I had my last lessons with two students, Josh and Andrew. Tonight is my last lesson with another family. Yikes! I love my kids, and here I am, leaving them. I know, I know, I'll have all kinds of new students in England. But until I meet them and start to love them, I'll miss my private lesson students and my kids from the Elverta job. Just the way we sappy teachers are.

People tell me all the time that I make a difference in kids' lives. What people don't understand is that these kids make a difference in mine. I learn from them every bit as much as they learn from me.

Well, enough sappiness for today. I want to check out all the features that come with my little blog. What fun!
