Ok, so this is my third attempt at writing an entry.....gotta love technology in a third wold country. I hope all is going well with everyone! I can't believe that it's already been a YEAR and a HALF on this crazy island.
Sorry that it's been a couple of months since writing....I've been really busy with school and things are great. I am teaching the same levels as last year (6eme and 2nde- the equiv. of 5th grade and soph. in high school) and feel like a MUCH better teacher this year! Maybe it's because I understand more Malagasy, so when the kids are talking I can catch them if they are using bad words :) It's alot of fun! Oh, and I'm teaching alot less hours (from 24 to 14) so I feel like I can actually take time to breathe now. Of course, I decided to start an English Club, Girls Club, and an Adult class....so that "free" time kinda disappeared, but I figured I'm here to do a job, right!?
Two pieces of GREAT news- 1.- My cousin Mark is coming to visit me THIS Sunday (Nov. 18)! It's gonna be alot of fun seeing my town, lemurs, and celebrating Thanksgiving with PCV's in Antsirabe. We'll be on the move alot, but you gotta get it all in when you can. 2.- I'll be coming home for Chirstmas!!!! I fly into O'Hare on Dec. 17 and leave Dec. 30th or so.....so let me know when you're free and I'd love to see as many of you as possible before I return. It'll be nice to have some nicer temps and maybe see some SNOW! I actually miss that white stuff :)
That's about all the news that I have. Thanks again for all the letters, packages, well wishes, e-mails, and prayers! I am very blessed to have all of you as friends and family! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope to hear and/or SEE you soon!
