- Practicum went very well, but I'm very glad it is over. The lesson planning is pretty hectic because you have to create all your own resources. I've become quite the stick figure artist. I taught 5th, 6th and 9th forms. My kids were awesome. I've included a few pictures of one 5th form class...just pretend they're all smiling. The serious face in pictures is an Azeri tradition - even wedding photos! I managed to convince a few of them to show some teeth - mainly because we learned the word that day! :)
- D shaved his beard today!! :( Our host dad told him he looked like an unsavory religious zealot...in so many words...so that was the last straw. We're back to baby-face Dustin...for now anyway.
- D gave a presentation this week that was a great success. We were both running on empty by the end of the week and have used most of the day to recoup. We are SO excited to go to sleep every night...so sad!! Hahaha...
- D's program (CED) finds out their region placements on Tuesday!! That means in just a few short days we'll know where we'll spend the next few short years...exciting and terrifying! Keep your fingers crossed. We'll let you all know ASAP.
We love you all and miss you like crazy. Please keep the e-mails coming...the "little things" at home are the "big things" to us...
