Our Lao Shi

I was so honored today to have my Mandarin teacher and her lovely daughter come to meet Abbey today. She also translated notes I recieved from the orphanage. My lao shi has been so encouraging and she has shared such a wealth of information with me about the beautiful culture of China. She also works for our school district assessing all the Chinese students on their language development and seeing that they are recieving proper instruction. She was formerly the principal of our Saturday Chinese school too. Abbey and I are so fortunate to have her in our lives.

We couldn't get Abbey to sit still even for a moment, she was as busy as a bumblebee.

    That is a HUGE blessing - what another neat "God-thing"!!! That will be a neat relationship for Abbey as well.

    Off the subject question - but our Dec DTC group is asking of anyone has used Blogger while in China- I remembered you had - can you give us any insight - was it hard to connect to - drop pictures down, etc.??? Thanks in advance!!

    I can see what you mean about Abbey not waiting to sit still--she looks like she is ready to bound out of the arms of the two women at 200 miles per hour! A bumble bee is a good analogy! It is wonderful that she will have these two people in her life & maybe she will even learn Chinese (her native language) so she can be bi-lingual. In CA this is certainly a plus!
