My daughter didn't have as nice a time at kindergarten round-up for the Chinese immersion school as some others did. She left insisting that she wanted to go to her old school. I must admit I've caught myself picturing her in the Chinese class next fall, screaming at the teacher to JUST SAY IT IN ENGLISH!
This afternoon we were out in the street riding bikes and talking with neighbors. We had some new neighbors come down the hill and around the corner, looking for a flat place to ride a scooter. We all introduced ourselves and when I asked Hope to tell her name, she said, "My name's Hope; ni hao." Like, whatever.
I hope she isn't going to hate us for putting her in this school. We think it will be good for her but I'm anticipating a rough first few weeks.
