I guess some things really are the same all over the world. Last Friday at school was apparently Science Day, where the kids got to take the last period off (when they are usually cleaning the school) to fly the airplanes and rocketships they had built.

Here are some cute pictures of kids being kids.

We are just starting our third week of classes and things had been running fairly smothly until now. My grade 1 and 2 (7th and 8th) classes are split up between high and low levels.

This week I had my first grade 1 low classes, and that is a whole different world.
