Megan and I have been back in Tianjin for almost four weeks now. We continue to fix up our apartment. A couple days ago our dining room table was delivered. Yesterday we had ADSL and cable tv installed. Today a wardrobe and dresser were brought in. No more suitcases on the floor. We have a very nice home, and we are so happy to be living here.
I’ve done a lot of bikin’, liftin’, and soccer playin’ in the last month. Unfortunately I hurt my knee Sunday in a soccer game, but I’m healin’ fast. Megan has been doin’ the Tae-bo thing from time to time and will be doin’ it every Sunday with a bunch of ladies while I’m kickin’ a ball.
Work has been going awesome. My students are extremely well behaved and working hard. I really enjoy teaching just sixth graders. Megan begins Chinese classes at a local university starting this Monday. This will be a Monday – Friday thing for 3 1/2 hours each day. We both are taking language classes for about two hours through my school and that has been good. Although my language skills are not strong, I continue to improve and feel very encouraged.
