S’s class starts the day on the playground doing group ring activities
H is a bit bashful, but her teacher is very kind
The girls have really enjoyed their first 3 days of school this week. The first order of events was to get Chinese names for them. Mama emergently called a friend at 10 pm the night before to ask her advice, and she and her husband helped us come up with wonderful meaningful names.
S is now known at school as “Hou Ya Hui” which means “Elegance and Wisdom.”
H is called “Hou Meng Yuan” which means “Dream Fulfilled.”
L will go by “Hou Lu Ming” which means “His Road is Bright.”
Meng Yuan has learned to count to ten on her fingers the Chinese way, and Ya Hui has made at least 6 new friends AND learned to say her Chinese name!
