What a poignant night we had last night here in Newark. Our dear 3rd grade teacher, Emily Boyd is leaving today to be a teacher overseas. She has been so marvelous; so involved with her students, so enthusiastic, so real. There was a huge good-bye barbecue hosted by Emily and her teacher-roommates. They opened the gate to the playground and we got lots of kids--both invited and uninvited. Missionaries and school families also attended. Fun was had by all and tears were shed. I can't wait to read her facebook comments this school year, but how we will miss her!
