Potluck and Farewell

Potluck and Farewell - by Parker Cole

The last few days of our trip came to an end quickly. Friday night we had a potluck where all of the families gathered together at Collège Saint-Michel to eat a very big dinner. Every family arrived, and we dug into all of the delicious food that each family brought. There was a very large amount of food, and tasting all of the new French food, snacks and drinks was really cool. After the kids were done eating, we all ran outside to play tag and soccer, which made us so tired. The potluck was tons of fun, but we were all sad that it meant we soon would be leaving France and our students.

On Sunday morning, we woke up around 4:00 am to get to the airport by 5:00. I was super tired and also very sad to leave. We arrived at the airport, checked or bags and started to say our final goodbyes. It was very sad to leave, and I wish we could have stayed for just one more week. Although we were all super sad to leave, we knew we would see our friends again in just 6 months. We had a safe, easy trip back to Chicago and were very excited to see our families.

Thank you for such a wonderful experience. We can't wait until our partners come to visit Chicago in May.
