The semester is winding down. I finished my 6 classes at the main school yesterday, and I will finish some of my classes at the university today. There are a couple of straggler classes, so I'll be teaching a little the next couple of weekends, but since I've already piloted the lessons this weekend there will be no more lesson prep.
My weekday kindergarten classes at the new school will continue as usual, but I should have a one week break before summer session begins.
Tomorrow I will finally get out of Jinan, yay! I will get up early to go to Beijing with a colleague; we need to leave here at 5:45 to get to the train station on time. I learned how and where to buy the long distance train ticket, now I will get to travel too. Once I've done it with help I'll feel more confident about going it on my own; in fact, I'll have to, because I'm staying in Beijing a day longer than she is. I'll come home on Tuesday evening and should have new pics and stories.
