Another week has come and gone. I apologize (mommy) for not posting very regularly. Everything has been going very well, except for the fact that Emily left us on Tuesday L. I hated to see her leave. Emily is one of those people that is so open and so herself that you feel like you have known her forever instead of the two short weeks that we did. She was so good to us and really got us settled in here. I really don’t know what we would have done without her. Taylor and I would probably still be sitting in our room, unable to sleep, and not sure what to do with ourselves before Emily busted in with her Memphis shirt on, some awkward hellos, and the beginning of a sweet friendship. Ha, Emily I miss you! Every time I eat a Magnum ice cream cone, make a munto doughnut, watch a movie in the movie room, hear Ling Ling yell your name, say pretty in Chinese, or pretty much any word in Chinese, I will think of you. Miss you miss you!
Here are a few pictures of the children on Saturday. We went and got them ice cream. A nice treat for the hot day!
Elizabeth, or bei bei, upset about something!
Ting ting and Eric. They are boyfriend and girlfriend about every other day.
Hey there chicken head.
Taylor, being the vegetarian that she is, sat as far away as she could!
Me, Taylor, Emily, Sarah, and Marissa. The cliche Chinese peace sign pose.

Yesterday, I taught my first Kindergarten class. My class is so precious. I will post a picture of each of them and tell you about them on my next post. I am seriously in love with all of them. I am starting off teaching them time. It is going pretty well. The lesson only takes a little while and then the rest of the time we sing English songs. I am so thankful to Emily for teaching them some great songs. I will post videos later as well.
I feel like this blog is going to be a little update about what is going on and then something that the l0rd is teaching me. I read this verse earlier this week and since then it has been on my mind. It is so convicting and something that should be convicting us daily.
Whoever claims to live in him must walk as J*sus did.
1 john 2:6
We aren't supposed to become chr1st1ans and then just go to ch*rch on Sundays and have an occasional quiet time. Oh, and be nice to others. We are called to walk as he did.
