Last week the kids had "Sports Meeting" at the University. It was great because I didn't have to teach on Friday. It was also great because it was excellent weather, a fun competition and the kids are so awesome to be with. Sports Meeting is the equivalent of a big track and field meet. There were kids who were athletes and kids who had never run before. All the students were there cheering their classmates on; opening and closing ceremonies; cheerleaders and dancing groups, etc. My freshman were so excited to have me there--they were constantly taking care of me--coming to find me when I arrived and escorting me to the group, putting paper down to sit on, holding a parasol over my head so I'm out of the sun, bringing me water or a treat and making sure I'm comfortable. I was interviewed by the school newspaper and radio station about 8 times. (The kids brought the newspaper to school and were so "proud of me"....they don't realize that I'm the "token" foreignerI got to wander around on the field because they thought I knew what I was doing. Anyway, back to the grindstone this week. The kids are giving class presentations the next few weeks and they've been really great so far.
