Bye Gabe!

It was a sad day to say farewell to Mr. Gabriel. It was nice to have him at apart of our first day of school actvities but there was this sinking feeling in my heart saying, "Soon he is leaving us."

We all met on the Wharf to send him off to high school properly.

Lots of hugs and flowers and some special gifts picked out by the Monhegan School to help him do his best work at high school (like a head scrather and some funny magnets from the Black Duck.)

I think Gabe knew that we were all going to miss him but we are so proud of him and so excited for his adventures at Hebron Academy!

And then real crazy people lined up to, of course, "jump for Gabe!"

Some less crazy folks decided to jump from the ramp since it was low tide!

Brrrr... it was chilly. But having someone jump for you when you leave Monhegan is good luck for things to come and assures your return to the island and we want both of those things for Gabe!

So, farewell Gabe! We love you and miss you already! But we know you will be back soon.

One final goodbye.
