That's at least what they said on Modern Family, and maybe even before then. Is Jay right, do tough things rally make you stronger? If yes, my kids are going to build some strength these next ten weeks. Kelly was worried about what the other girls would be wearing the first day of school. No need to worry, No girls, no Americans, no english speakers. Just a class full of seven other boys, beside Josh, all very old seeming, and compared to my my toe head, all very, very dark. From Nigeria, Brazil, Portugal, Macedonia, and a few other places I didn't even recognize. They have sports - P.E., twice a week, Kelly is most worried how this will work. The teachers don't hardly speak any English with the kids, and I have no idea how they are suppose to do what they are asking. I am in school with them until Kelly feels more comfortable. (maybe the whole ten weeks.) I just want to grab them and get them out of there. It seems so hard and, as parent's often do, I just want to protect them from anything too difficult. The kids have 6 weeks of class, each day from 8:20 - 11:50. Then three weeks Fall Break, then four more weeks of language class. After this we will be in our permanent place so they will just walk across the street to go to the neighborhood school. This will be much easier in many ways especially because it won't be a two leg, thirty minute bus ride.
I'm not feeling sorry for myself, (maybe a little) but think of me as your are out to lunch, playing tennis, walking along Cottonwood Creek, and I will think of you as my two kids and I are sitting in a classroom with no air conditioning and a large, sweaty Heir Zimmerman trying to teach a bunch of immigrants German.
