杂谈

The fall semester of '14-'15 wasn't too extraordinary. Perhaps that explains my lapse in blogging. Mostly it was busy. I took on a few extras besides my normal writing class.

On the one hand I enjoyed being able to continue seeing last year's students, as I taught a small listening/speaking class. On the other hand, it was only once a week for three hours, so I found it more difficult than I expected, both from a teaching and a relational standpoint. Eleventh grade at my school is easily the most difficult 'trial by fire' that I've ever seen. I won't go into the reasons here, but it was difficult seeing these 16-17-year-olds under so much stress and exhaustion for so long.

I also served as a mentor for several of my coworkers who were pursuing teaching qualifications through T-N in the U.S. This turned out to be much less work than it could have been, but it was still one more thing to do. I had considered joining the program mys

In no particular logical order... but somewhat chronological. Here we are at Plum Lake Park in Puer, China.

I was impressed by the functioning 'toy' backhoe close to the park entrance.

We're quite thankful that our trip to Chengdu went (relatively) smoothly and being on the road for a week with a nine-month-old boy makes us even more grateful to be back home for a few weeks!

Our train ride from Kunming to Chengdu was uneventful and started out quite well. Amy's parents were able to accompany us into the train station by virtue of their age as well as Daniel's age. :-) My opinion of Kunming's train station improved dramatically as, once again, due to Daniel's age, we found ourselves entitled to the use of a special 'Women & Children's Waiting Hall.' Unlike the rest of the train station which was beginning to show signs of China's signature 'Summer Rush' (as college students and tourists alike fight for space on crowded trains), the latter waiting hall was nearly empty and we were given priority boarding on the train before the bulk of the passengers arrived from the main waiting hall.

Unfortunately, while China's trains are advertised as

This is the most recent picture, from our day at the zoo, June 25. Daniel wasn't too interested in the animals. :-)

Yes, I am in charge!

Ready for my nap.
