Waldo approvedI travel a lot so I know a lot of ways to say goodbye – ciao, adios, peace out – but it’s never easy no matter what the language. This is my last day at Seattle Children’s before I start my next adventure. I’m sad to go but also excited because it means Building Hope is almost done.

 I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since Sellen Construction invited me to join the crew working on the new building. Every day they sent me somewhere different on the construction site. I’ll never forget playing “Where’s Waldo?” with all the kids and families at the hospital. Do you remember spotting me perched on the construction crane? Or peeking out of the Port-A-Potty? Good times!

 Thanks, Sellen, for asking me to be part of your team. I look pretty buff after all that construction work. Nobody’s laughing at my beanie now! And thanks, Children’s, for asking me to write about all the things I saw and people I met here. After all this blogging, I should write books. Psych! I’ve already have.

Before I go, I have a favor to ask all you Waldo fans. Keep an eye on things after I leave. There’s a good chance I’ll be back when Children’s starts its next construction project and I’ll want to know everything that happened while I was gone.

Adieu, sayonara, later dude. Waldo has left the building.
