Hello Family and friends,

Today is our last day of camp and we are already feeling the emotion of loss. We have grown so close to our children and Chinese assistants. It will be a tearful farewell. I am so proud of my American team. They have persevered through many days of non stop activities. The physical and emotional strain can take its toll, but they haven't wavered in the job they came to do.

Last night, Wednesday, we had our Night In The Park, where the kids got to do different activities in their mentor groups. The kids enjoyed face painting, drawing with sidewalk chalk, playing card games, coloring and Twister. It was a great time to sit and have a conversation while playing together!

It's a rainy and stormy Wednesday in Beijing. We have had to move our classes to the Sunshine Building, since the roads and sidewalks are all flooded. We don't want the kids walking through ankle deep, dirty water. Hopefully the rain will end and we can move back into the Teaching Building. We are a flexible bunch!!
