See ya later, Winn Elementary!

On Friday, November 7th, I will say "See ya later" to all my friends at Winn Elementary. It is going to be a very sad day for me because I have spent the past 6.5 years at Winn. The faculty, staff, and especially the students have been my family in Austin. I will miss them all dearly, but we will be in touch through this website. I plan on posting pictures and stories from my adventures in Africa.

You can see from my awesome Patrick Starfish countdown ticker that I do not leave for Africa for awhile, but I am going home to Ohio to spend time with my family. My actual departure date for Africa is December 30th, 2008.

In the meantime, you can leave me comments on this site by clicking below this post where it says "comments". I hope you will consider leaving me comments to let me know how you are doing, especially when I am in Africa.

I love you all very much and I'm proud of you. Keep working hard, stay in school, and dream big! As Barack Obama showed us all on Tuesday night, ANYTHING is possible.

Peace. Love. Respect.
Mr. Butler
