The Last Supper

It’s a bit past 10 p.m. in Frankfurt, a little past 4 p.m. EST, and we all just finished dinner at The Twelve Apostles. Terrence and Kelsey created mock awards for everyone, including the professors. Makemson received the Engagement Award for checking sports scores on his phone, and Hatcher received the Strudel Man Award for consuming so much of it over the course of three weeks.

Kind words and gentle ribbing were the order of the night, and all of us are torn between wanting to extend our time together vs. getting back to friends and family in the States. All except Audrey, who has declared that she is moving to Frankfurt this week and staying forever. We may have to drag her onto the bus to the airport in the morning.

A reunion is planned (after the professors assign grades) in a month or so. We will view videos and photos and relive the memories of the last 20 days. Twenty-six travelers are returning as twenty-six friends. Despite the need for professional distance, it’s safe to say that friendship is felt by the professors as well. It’s been a good ride.

We came, we saw, we ate too much.

Thanks to the families who have read these blogs. We have enjoyed the privilege of teaching your bright, fun, & creative kids and look forward to having them in future classes & seeing them around Elon.
