my tutees were fun today. the younger one's finally getting a good enough grasp of english to try more creative things, so i've been dictating words to him every day and he writes sentences. but they're not always good ones. and he knows when i'm going to tell him it's not good enough, too. but at this point i think he does it because he knows it'll make me laugh first. for example:
EVERYTHING: I love everything.
SUGAR: I eat sugar.
just imaging him sitting there in the middle of the room, shovelling sugar into his mouth, spoonful by spoonful. EES FUNNY.
i like my kids. i just wish they lived a titch closer. but i'm starting to really enjoy going through maple ridge, too. it's nice, as long as you're not stuck there.
