Sweep the leg, Johnny
He seems to really enjoy the classes. They are social but also give him the chance to do something that he can take pride in accomplishing on his own.
The ceremony was very well done given that most kids were under the age of 8. First they all bowed. The parent tie the new belt on them, they bow again and then give 'huggies'. Warm fuzzies everywhere.
Corey has also learned to play tic-tac-toe. This is just one of the games you forget about until kids are around. Last time we played, I had to end it at 35 games. Holy crap, that goes on forever. For the record, I won 2 games, he won 2 and it was a draw the other 31 games.
School is in full gear and my team is amazing. This first week, our main project was completed by Tuesday and no one had any objections to the way it was done. We had two conference calls to go over homework and each person contributed. THIS is what I had hoped for in grad school.
The classes so far are interesting and not overwhleming. Perhaps I'm getting smarter? In an evil way, it's fun to watch the new students struggling in Statistics as we did last year. However, I feel we are giving them more practical advice on how to deal with things more so than we got from our predecessors.
Word on the streets is that this year's class might not be returning to Vietnam. Hopefully, it has more to do with the curriculum than not being welcomed back.
It will be a shame though; I need to place an order for more table runners.
