The morning I left Aliza made me an emergency kit based on what she had learned the previous day about a hurricane preparedness kit. She gathered up so many things including band aids, cotton balls, cloths pins (in case there was a bad smell!), craft sticks for tongue depressors (in case our throat hurt), candy (nonperishable food), a water bottle, and her Spanish flashcards (the best thing she could think of for entertainment). She also wrote me a card and drew pictures of me doing something with each person in the family--complete with a heart on each paper and XOXO. There were lots and lots of hugs and tears when it was time for me to leave.
