Or five weeks if you're counting down until we come home. Our two weeks now consists of regular classes. This week we'll be teaching out of our books and doing the same mundane lessons we always have to teach. Next week, however, should be pretty fun.
Most of our kids are smart enough to let us know that next week will be our last class together (forever for most of them), so they know they can get by asking to play Uno or Skip-bo. We will happily oblige.
We're hoping these next fews weeks don't go by super slow...It's the rainy season here in South Korea, so no help there. Here's a picture of Jason after going to get bread and milk for tomorrow. We knew it was raining, but we didn't know it was raining that hard.
Anyways, after next week, we move into three weeks of English camp. This should be cake, except there has been a turn of events.
As most of you know, we've been hired for another job here in Gwangju starting in September. So, we will be very busy in our last three weeks. We've got to pack, move, clean, then pack again to visit home. But now our new job wants us to come and shadow for four days during our English camp. That's teaching from 9 in the morning until about 9:00 at night. Sure, most of the time we'll just be sitting there watching…which, I don't see why we need to observe for 4 days….we've been doing this a year now. But that's still a long day to be in classes. There are pros and cons. At least this time we get to see exactly what we're getting ourselves into.
It's been a long road here at Songwon Elementary School. Sometimes it feels like a wrong turn, but I'm glad we did it. I't's good to be moving on. Leaving Songwon will not be bittersweet. Just sweet.
Anyways….Family & Friends: We are planning a way to share our time with different individuals. If you want to know what we've figured out so far, write us a message. I'm sure we'll let you know soon enough.
