I know some are very Pro Chinese School.
Some are very Anti Chinese School.
I figure, we just do our best for our children, and it may not be the same for every child or family... but we've had some interesting times at Chinese School so far. :-)
|Ping in Class...|
Ping: We go China school tomorrow?
Me: Yes Ping, we will go to China School tomorrow.
Ping: Just you and me? We go school?
Me: Yes, Daddy will come.
Ping: And Daddy stay with Ping.
Me: Of course Daddy will stay with you.
Ping: Cuz Daddy never leave me.
Me: Thats right, Daddy will never leave you.
Ping: Cuz you love me!
Me: Thats right.
G: Daddy, can I come to Chinese School with you and Ping?
Ping: Whaaaaaaat? You learn Chinese?
G: Yes, cuz if I learn Chinese, then I can go to China when we adopt again.
Me: G, you really want to come to Chinese school?
Ping: YAY!!! Me and Gemma go Chinese School! Mah big sister!
G: Pleeeeeease can I go?!
Me: Of course you can come. We'll just have to talk to the teacher when we get there.
Ping + G: YAAAAAAY!!!
|Big Sister G in Chinese School|
They are going to allow G to take Jr. Kindergarten with her little sister Ping - and they are both very excited to be in the same class (even if G is a couple years older than most of the kids there).
|The Cuteness is overwhelming in Chinese School now!|
But for now, I'm just amazed at our children, and even though G was absolutely LOST in class (the whole class is in Mandarin, no English at all), and there was so much going on she didn't understand, G stuck it out, and is willing to come back week after week to be with her Sister.
A great story of sisterly love!ReplyDelete
Yea, we're just thrilled that at least ONE of her siblings is willing to take the class with her. :-)ReplyDelete
Oh, how I loved reading this. Both your girls sound amazing.ReplyDelete
It's great to hear a story like this where an older sister takes an interest in learning her little sister's language. It is such a nice reassurance for Ping to feel secure in her belonging to her family. We to are looking at a second adoption.ReplyDelete
