It’s true that the influence you have over kids is impactful… I’m coming up on my last four days of the semester and am grateful to say that I really thankful for his year and am amazed by my kids constantly. 🙂

A lil secret is that my kids call me queen Christine because when we were working on the q sound… We were also learning about rhyming words. Therefore the catcheyness of queen Christine came in and hasn’t left them 🙂 here’s some drawings from the end of the year booklets… So adorable 🙂

Sports Day @ YKPAO June 17, 2012

Filed under: for fun — chinabean @ 3:55 pm

Friday June 15 was our annual sports day fun!

It was located at our secondary campus in Song Jiang and boy was it beautiful!

The rain came sprinkling down the morning and drive over but once we reached Thames Town, the sun peeked out and it ended up being an absolutely beautiful day.

The students began the day with the march around the track and proceed with various relay races. I had a lot of team spirit and wrote all over my arms and legs and got to write on some of my kids faces with body paint!

Our school is split into houses: spring summer winter autumn. It’s very similar to the Harry potter idea. The students competed in their house groups and it was a lot of fun to throw in friendly competition.

The final results were:
4th place summer
3rd place autumn
2nd place by only 12 points spring
1st place winter!!!

I am in spring house and I was quite bummed we lost! But all in fun 🙂

Highlights from the day!

Made in the image of Gd, we were created to take responsibility for certain tasks. Part if taking responsibility or ownership is knowing what is our job, and what isn’t. Workers who continually take on duties that aren’t theirs will eventually burn out. It takes wisdom to know what we should be doing and what we shouldn’t. We can’t do everything. p. 27
