School




I started language school a little over a week ago. So far it has been a mixture of really fun and really hard! We are learning so much at an accelerated pace so it is hard to remember everything we've been taught before we have to cram even more stuff into our brains. The course I am in is an 8 week crash course in Japanese, so that is why it is so fast paced. When I am done with this course I will meet with a tutor about twice a week, while Mike continues with full time language school. I am much happier with this plan because it means that Brayden does not have to go to daycare so much! He will only have to go for the couple of hours I am in tutoring. Its a much better fit for our family. This picture is a picture of my class. 6 of us are from our team (3 are in a different class), 2 people are from England, and one Canadian guy. There are so many different people at the school, it is definatly a multi cultural experience. I have met people from Germany, China, Taiwan and more. It's very interesting!
