Summer Tour Stop #2 Part #2 - China Camp

It was our first year to attend our adoption agency's China Camp and I agreed to help teach as long as I could teach with Mrs. MMM. We didn't have much time together to plan and I was worried since I had no idea what to expect. However, I soon found out that China Camp is a fun thing when you're paired with the best possible teacher who compliments your personality exactly.

K and HMMM were in the same class and L and AGMMM were in the same class. K and H were in a hula hoop competition the first day of camp and tied for first place. Not bad since K had just learned how to hula hoop the week before.

L and AG ran around together and it was so cute to peek into their class and watch them play. Yes, the picture is blurry, but they wouldn't slow down! Isn't it sweet that they're holding hands?

Mrs. MMM and I taught the rising 1st-graders. We had a fairly large group of very sweet little girls and it was so neat to watch their different personalities. I handled the crafts, the vocabulary, and the quiet orderly parts while Mrs. MMM taught them to sing Happy Birthday, organized the Olympic games, and kept them moving and directing their energy in positive channels. We were the perfect team.

I kept my camera with me and took a ton of great pictures of all the girls, but I won't post them all. You'll just have to take my word for it.
