Anyway, the topic was "emotions." There's really nothing funny about that at all. Or, at least, there wasn't until the teacher took out this big picture of a stuffed bear. Also not funny. But then she started sticking these different faces to it and I found it incredibly funny. I just had to take some pictures. And, not only was it funny, but some of the faces reminded me of myself and my reaction to the end of summer.
First, this is how I looked at the beginning of the summer. This is supposed to be bear's angry face, but I think of it more as a "game face." I was ready to get things done this summer. 1) Start some more serious Mandarin study of my own. 2) Read more Mandarin books with the kids. 3) Find or make them each an age-appropriate workbook . . . .

This, however, is EXACTLY how my face looked the last day of summer classes:
|"What do you mean this is the last class?!"|
This is a picture of me now that, not only do we not have class all week, but I also somehow managed to accomplish ABSOLUTELY NONE of my goals for the summer.

As always, thanks for reading,
