Almost There: Home for Christmas

Less than a week to go and then school will be over for 2016!

In some ways it's hard to believe that Christmas is almost here, but on the other hand, I'm sure teachers everywhere can also agree when I say "Finally!" It's been a crazy-busy fall and I am ready for another kind of crazy-busy with my friends and family back in Canada.

I'm only home for two weeks and I'm sure the days will race by all too quickly. Last year, I couldn't afford the plane ticket across the ocean and while travelling around south-east Asia was fun, it didn't really feel like Christmas. Without the family, food and usual (habitual?) disappointing lack of snow, it just wasn't "Christmas" in some ways.
Throwback: The sun's rays hitting the peak on Mount Kinabalu, Christmas morning 2015
Throwback: My friend Jade and I bundled at the top of Mount Kinabalu. My hat? A t-shirt.
So, family, friends, I miss you and I am so excited to see as many of you as I can soon!

Love and Hugs.
