I got a webcam!

It's been just about three weeks since I arrived. How am I doing? I'm doing alright. There are times when I'm happy I came and times that I'd rather be at home, lying on the hammock with Kwinter perched at my side. I miss home and the people at home but I'm okay with that. At this point I think one year will be more than enough for me here in this country. As long as one year goes by quickly.

A teacher at my school has been sick the last two days so I had to take some of her classes on Monday when I would have otherwise been able to go home. Then yesterday I had her kindergarten class while mine went to computers and I had both classes during fourth period. That's twenty or so 4 year olds in one place! I opted for singing with them and it worked out pretty well. Her kids are much better behaved than mine. I've really gotta whip mine into shape!

We had a professional storyteller come in to do a workshop with the teachers at Kid's College and she was really great. She read us stories while she discussed the best way to go through books and I felt like a little kid again. I wish I could be a little kid again, sitting cross-legged on a braided rug without a care in the world. She gave really great ideas that I never would have thought of, like doing a 'picture walk' through the book before even getting into reading it so that the kids can have an idea of what's to come even if they don't understand the language completely. It was a really beneficial workshop.

I'm looking forward to the weekend even though it's only Wednesday morning. Come to think of it, I'm looking forward to the week to follow because it's vacation! I'm going to Japan from Tuesday to Friday so I don't know what else I'll do in my time off. Maybe sleep? Hmmm.
