SO I have forgotten what major things there are to fill you in on.
For the last few weeks I have stayed home on the weekends and done some cool things close to home.
I've really been able to enjoy teaching and have grown even closer to my kids.
We got to go to the lake with our students on one day instead of teach and that was awesome.
2 Saturdays were home visits and one Sunday was SuZhou for Easter church.
Home visits are awesome because you get to see what real Chinese homes are like
and you get to spend time with students. You learn lots of Chinese and practice lots of
English with them. But above all else you EAT. They feed us so much food, I have honestly
never in my life felt so full as I have on those home visits. Yesterday I went on one where 
we ate dinner at the Sheraton buffet. It was UNREAL. Picture the Hunger Games buffet in 
the capital. That is how it felt. Now a bunch of random pictures...
Here's me at the birthday party the Chinese teachers threw for those of us who have
birthdays during our stay here. SO much delicious food. And they gave me 
that pink hair bow as a gift. So nice, I love it :)

Me eating some of the weird food on my first home visit.
These are whole shrimp and you snap the head off.
This day I also had a ton of snails but they are surprisingly good!

Making dumplings! I am now an expert.
