Day 8

March 3, 2015
When I first got there today I told Jaida that this was my last day there and she was so sad, which then made me really sad. I feel like we had kind of become sisters. I could tell she really looked up to me and was so touched by that. After I told her that and she got sad I told her that we had to make this today count and we could do whatever she wanted. All she wanted to do was read Harry Potter, which I thought was cute because that had kind of turned into our thing that we did together. We spent the first half hour doing her math homework and dove right into reading. About 2 minutes into reading she ran out of things to color so we ran across the hall to print out more pictures and then got back into our reading. Today she didn’t want to read, she just asked that I read the whole time because she liked how I read. During our last little bit of time of reading she said, “Thank you Chellcee for visiting with me each week. I really like it when you’re here.” Being pregnant and very emotional I almost started to cry. I’m so glad that she enjoyed our time together as much as I did. She was so much fun to get to know and it was such a great experience to be able to observe firsthand how adolescent think and act. At the end of our time she had colored me a bunch of pictures and told me I had to put them in my school binder. Today and the last couple of weeks have been so great! I’m a little sad to see this project end, but very grateful that I had the opportunity to meet and get to know her.
