YES! Finally I was able to download a picture onto here! And it worked! This is the front lobby of our Yale English school, and this is how we decorated it for the games. The lady sitting at the desk is the secretary, Andreia.
So, now that I am all excited about the picture, I will continue. The third game is tomorrow, at 4PM, between Brasil and Japan. Hopefully that will be a good game too.
Yesterday was a good day of helping at the school. Andréa needed to study for a test she had last night, so she left me in charge of her 3rd class all by myself!!! It was good, and we just did 2 conversations and some listening work. After that was over, I gave them homework and we still had a half an hour left. The boys all wanted to leave early, because they wanted to watch the game between England and France. They kept bugging and bugging me, and finally I asked Andréa if it was ok, and she said fine. So they left 15 minutes early to watch the game!!! Crazy people psycho for soccer. Man, it's so funny.
Then after that I helped another teacher Polyana, with her class, and came home with Cristina in the crazy rush hour traffic of Brasília. I'm so glad they know how to drive in it, because I sure am terrified!
By then it was 7PM, and I had been at the school since 2PM...so it was a good afternoon!
Today I'm going to Águas Lindas again to do English review with my kids there. It's going to be a great day!
Tomorrow I am coming back in the afternoon to watch the game and say goodbye to André!!!I almost cried yesterday when I hugged him. But his wife, Celça, said that anybody from my family is welcome to stay at her house in Natal whenever they come to Brasil. So, there you go! I hope they take her up on that!
I should go now, it's almost time I have to leave. Glad that my family has met Graça already, I knew that you guys would like her!
Canada Day is coming up, and so is my sister Vanessa's 12th birhday, and don't you worry, I'm not forgetting either! AND it's my brother Graham's gr. 8 Graduation tomorrow...and I'm missing all of this!!!
Well, hope you all have a great day...wherever you are, know that God is watching over you! Thanks for all your prayers! Love, Ash
P.S.: Enjoy the picture!
