  • Bonfires.
    Updates about who's cute and who's overly dramatic.
    Seeing an adult mentor a student.
    Watching them connect their faith to their daily decisions.
    Long conversations about the simplest questions.
    Listening to the hard stories.
    Celebrating their successes.
    Waking up to oreos on my face.
    The stench of a group of middle school boys who just wrestled each other to the ground.
    (Well, maybe I won't miss that so much).

    I hope this next year will be meaningful.
