Almost Done

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.


  1. Glad to hear you get to do a bit of traveling, and glad there will be more pictures!! yeah pictures!!!! I You never mentioned how you are feeling... Better??? Hope so, i have been thinking about you. Talk with you soon, have a wonderful trip. Can't wait to hear all about it. xxoo

  2. It was a pretty whirlwind trip, just overnight, but Beijing was interesting and easy to get around there, so I'll definitely be going there again. Just got home, tired, more later.
