Adam: I'm late (but not in that way, Junior.)

Did you miss me? I have a long list of excuses why I haven’t blogged. But I’ll spare most of them from you. Just know that they’re really good excuses. (I went to Japan.) I just got back from my school’s graduation ceremony. I showed up at about 5:45PM and it had been going on since 3PM. It didn’t get over until 8:30PM. As you can tell...

Bethany:  Anatomy Lessons

So Korean kids are cute and they say the darndest things and all,  but sometimes, it’s just weird. First, I was teaching my first class of the day–a phonics class to kindergartners.  “Th” and “wh” sounds at 10 am.  Thin and thick are the words I’m demonstrating.  I hold my thumb and index finger apart to show thick, and then...
