primary update: we taught our 7 year olds for the second time today. and let me tell you, it was like night and day! and i think i owe it to starbursts. last week i brought cupcakes, thinking we would be the best teachers ever, but i guess cupcakes didn't make the cut. so today we tried a new tactic and gave each kid a starburst whenever they answered a question, volunteered, or had a comment. they behaved so well! and they had intelligent answers!
(last week they answered every question with.. "easter bunny")
last night we went to the reception of mr. and mrs. rondo! they had their wedding in san diego a week ago and then spent their honeymoon in the bahamas! it was good seeing them and we are really happy for them!
