Yesterday was my first Saturday teaching. I know, right? Well, it wasn't too bad, except I could hardly get the student to talk to me. I think she maybe said all of 5 sentences the whole hour and a half we were together. Since tomorrow is Father's Day here in Taiwan, we wrote a letter and made a card for her dad. At first she was really struggling in the creativity field, but then she wowed me with her drawing skills. All of these kids here are amazing artists, even the kids who are only 7 years-old.

Anyway, so yesterday afternoon a few of us decided to find the Jade market in Taichung. Unfortunately, by the time we got there they were slowly beginning to close up shop, so we have every plan to go back sometime earlier in the day... also after we've actually been paid (I just don't feel OK about spending my food stipend on things that are far from being edible- well, unless it's transportation. I'll spend food stipend money on that, too).

And here is Kaylee's face upon finding the Jade market. Yes, we were excited. Something about having found it by ourselves with no one who had been there before.

 Then today after church on our walk home from the bus stop, Kendra noticed this cactus growing over a wall. Check out the cool dangly plant!

And just because she's so gorgeous, a picture of Kendra, too.
