Our End of the Year Performance at the Alpenrose Opera House!
Happy 10th birthday to my mini athletic diva! The Force is Female with this one. 🎂🎉🎈
I won an activity tracker at the Mt. Olivet Wellness Fair yesterday. I gave it to my daughter for her birthday. She set a goal of 5000 steps. I kept saying, "You can do 10,000". She hit 5000 steps by noon. After some yard work, she was excited to show us that she did over 10,000 steps!
Our students visited Wangfuijing Street, Beijing and had the opportunity to have Scorpions on a Stick. No one tried it. Would you? . . . . . .
12 our students have done a great job at Chinese Skills & Talents Contests hosted by Confucius Institute this past Saturday for this very first time of participation. They have won 1st-3rd Prizes in multiple areas including Chinese Speech, Dictation and Short Film. Some of them won in multiple categories for a total of 16 awards. They were able to compete with students from other schools and even adults. Congratulations!!
Come to the Usborne Book Fair! There is something for everyone! Grab your favorite new book and be sure to look at the Teacher's Wish List. The book fair is April 12-13 in the Community Room.
This was the only dish that I tried where I said, "No, thank you." I know why after they told me what it was. It's basically the Chinese version of chittlins. Chitterlings, if you want the proper way of saying it. It wasn't bad, just not my favorite.
Before we had these two, I left corporate america so that I could be a stay at home mom. I have been home with them since day 1. Who knew that a trip to the library for story time would lead us to China. That is how I learned about @nwca_social. My girls have been speaking Mandarin since the age of 3. They speak with no accent. Thanks to our business mentors, we know it is just not about making $$$, it is about having the time to be in the right place that leads you to incredible opportunities.
Okay, so I started our trip off right by having this for breakfast for the first two mornings. They had a great salad bar and tons of fruit for breakfast. Despite my best efforts, I still gained 10 lbs over 2 weeks. I know I have a lot of inflammation, so I am focusing on reducing that first. A nice hot bath to sweat and I already dropped a pound. I will share what worked and what didn't work for me. . . . . . .
