and then she snapped: show off your shot

show off your shot

I went to the third (and final) going away party for my seester this evening. She is heading out Tuesday morning for the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. (That's the southern-most part of Texas, and it's about as close as you can get to Mexico without actually going to Mexico). She and her man are driving down there and then she begins six weeks of training for Teach For America. She's going to be an awesome teacher! 

This will be quite an adventure for her...a new state, a new career, and new friends. She knows the general area she'll be teaching in, and that it will be middle school level, but she doesn't yet know what subject, or what specific school. So until then they won't know what town they'll be living in. Hopefully she'll get her assignment sooner than than later so they'll be able to look for a place to live for the next two years!

I'm totally going to miss her, but it's going to be so great for her that I can't be sad. And plus, we have so much technology that allows us to keep in touch that it really doesn't make a difference if she's across town, or across the country!

I hate saying goodbye though. I kind of suck at it. So I'll say what my Grandma always says, "Bye for now!" Love you Clare, you are totally going to kick ass.

  1. Best of luck to her ~ what a great challenge and exciting adventure! It gets so crazy when good-byes get "drawn out" and the parties just keep on coming!

  2. Aww.. I'd miss my sister, too. Luckily, mine just moved 7 minutes away from me! :D

    Lots of luck to yours.

  3. An adventure, for sure. Wishing her all the best!

  4. Oh I am so sorry to hear about your sister. Thankful for technology to help keep you close. Looks like it was a great party.

  5. NO REASON TO SAY GOODBY. See u is better. btw, you have internet. Ever thought about SKYPE. Greatest thing invented ever.

  6. Sounds like a great opportunity for her. Best of luck to her and yay for Skype! :)

  7. Best of Luck to your sister on her new adventure!

  8. I am really excited for Clare. This is going to be such a great adventure for her. And I'm sad that I missed this particular party; red solo cups and a huge tub of licorice on the table is so right up my alley.

  9. I hope your seester has a fun time on her journey! I love Teach America. I am pretty much in love with anyone that does something that makes the world a better place! We have some Teach for America teachers in Philly. Awesome.

  10. love you seester! i can't wait til we find out our final location too! (so you can mail me presents and come visit, of course!)
