Wow, this week has been so long and tiring and I'm really glad to see the end of it. The only other week that came close to this kind of madness was the first week we were here (although that week was worse since we were adjusting to everything and not just new students). Things are beginning to settle and it seems like it will be all right. My kindergarten students are going to be a lot of work but luckily my elementary classes are quite simple to teach and the students are well behaved so I suppose it balances out.
Today I managed to get a photo of the illusive Andy. He's the smallest kid in the class (everyone except Lily is about a head taller than him) and is so small that he actually has difficulty with stairs. What he lacks in stature he definitely makes up for in attitude. In this picture he looks rather pensive and is probably thinking of ways to wreck havoc.
You can see a few more pictures here. The kids are eating Korean rice cake which is much different than rice cakes in Canada. These are chewy and sticky and sweet. They are called Deok and aren't too bad (although I don't think I could have eaten as large of a quantity as the kids did today). Anyway, we survived the week and this is the important thing.
