Inscription over the door at the Library of Thebes
It's official - all 7 of the students in my class are doing the Challenge Course!
I'm going to have to re-work the bulletin board, because I only set it up with enough space for 6 pictures per mission...
Oh well, I guess there are worse problems to have! ;)
This week I'm sending them off to the public library to get a library card and check out a book. Ana uses the word "library" and so I assumed that she understood the basic concept. But she was truly surprised and amazed recently when I told her that the library card was free and, once you had it, you could borrow books and DVDs for free. She just could not get over it. FREE?!?
I did point out the relationship to paying taxes, but, bottom line - it's a lot harder to take this country for granted when you have friends who grew up somewhere else.
P.S. - Thanks to everyone for all the kind words about Milly. We feel the hole in our lives without her here, but are getting by...
