My kindergarten kids graduated!!

I had a lazy morning but the rest of the day was soooo busy! At 3:00pm all the teachers and staff met at the school and then we headed to the theater for the kindergarten graduation performance. We had a quick sign language lesson by one of the Korean teachers who taught us the Korean song we’ll be singing and then at 4:00pm the kids came. Before the peformance we had one quick practice and then we waited until it was our class’ turn to go up on stage. While we were waiting for our turn we were split into two rooms and we had to keep the kids quiet during the evening. Can you image 40- 50 kids crammed into a small room for 4 hours? It was kind of crazy trying to get the kids to be quiet but we managed!
My kids did a wonderful job for their Cinderella performance!! They were so cute dressed in their costumes!Thanks for praying for my class! The auditorium was filled with parents, grandparents and family members. It seemed like everyone had a camera in their hands flashing at the kids! I can tell their parents were very proud of their kids tonight! After my class performed, we quickly got them changed and into their graduation robes. Then all the kindergarten classes sang two songs (one in Korean and one in English). After we sang the songs the graduating classes received their certificates. I finally got to meet some of my kids parents! I was very glad to meet Ann’s parents in my class. Her mom was very pleased to meet me and we spoke for a while too. I also received flowers tonight too by a couple of the parents, that was very nice of them!
After the graduation performance all the Korean staff and teachers went out for dinner at a Korean restuarant. We welcomed the new teachers and Mr. Kim (the director) gave the teachers who are leaving a thank-you gift. I was very surprised he also gave me a gift too, that was very nice of him! I think the best part of eating out with my co-workers at a Korean restuarant this time was I ate with chopsticks for the entire meal! Yea!! It felt like a real accomplishment because that has been a real struggle since I got here! Thank-you Lord!! Eating with chopsticks takes practice because it’s not something you normally do in Canada!
Anyway, tonight was a great night! I was very proud of my kids for doing such an awesome job and everything well so well! I’m going to really miss them!!
