I have been working with Miss Tina and Miss Jean in Nursery and Kinder the past few days.
It is really cool to be able to see them work with the kids, and to see how the kids respond to them.
In class I taught them some songs today, there is nothing like seeing a classroom of enthusiastic kids singing "If you love Jesus."
I am still trying new things, some I can stomach more than others. The other night I tried Dilis: it stared at me, and I'm sure was cursing me as I chewed. It was quite terrible. Actually, the taste is not too bad; it is decently good. But getting over the fact that it's staring at me is hard, and I guess I can't do it yet, but I will try again! The boys ate the rest of my delicious Dilis. Lucky them.
Before I leave, my wonderful brothers have decided I am trying Balut. A wonderful dish... that I will probably puke while eating, but I guess I might as well try it just to say I did. Wish me luck! I'm hoping to put it off for at least 3 months.

Friday we went to see a movie in Tagalog. None of us understood it, but that is okay! We got the gist.
Sunday afternoon the boys in our family had a basketball game. They did GREAT! We lost by a few points but everyone did really well. Especially Sir Nathan, Jake, and Joe. But maybe I am just biased.
Here is one of our wonderful moments cleaning the kitchen. One Direction of course, due to Jacob's request.

Also, I got to meet a Filipino clown.
Picture grayish pink make up all over an Asian face, a white yarn wig, rather feminine mannerisms, bright red lipstick, and a huge red nose. Tyler, if you thought clowns back home were scary... I can't even imagine your reaction if you met one here.
I hope this finds everyone well, and 'hello' from Bacolod!
P.S. The bugs are attracted to my computer screen, therefore I have bug guts on it. I am risking my life simply to keep you all informed on how I am doing. I STRONGLY DISLIKE BUGS!
