5 Down, 5 To Go

I can't believe I've hit the half way mark. You know how you feel like time stands still, but then all of a sudden it's gone? This realization makes me feel kinda old. But I've still got a lot of life left in me. A lot of time still in India for that matter.

We had school for the first time in a while today. It went really well, I'm finally finding a rhythm for the class. It's still really challenging at times. But I don't go home crying everyday like the first month or so. I'm loving my kids more and more. They are very special and I look forward to getting to spend even more time with them. It's really fun when I meet them outside the classroom and get to talk to them. They are always really happy to see me. Which is nice, at least they don't hate me...I think.
I don't know how effectively I'm teaching them English, but I do what I can and  I think just having someone there to give them time and encouragement is good.

It's finally starting to cool off here. All the Indians are wearing sweaters and hats like it's gonna snow. But it still feels like summer to me lol

My family is coming in less than a month and I cannot wait. Anyway, I really don't know what to write about most of the time. So, if anyone has any questions about anything feel free to ask and I'll answer to the best of my ability.

oh! on my way home from school there was a giant elephant walking down the road. It was all painted with people ridding on top. It was massive, I guess I never really realized how big elephants were until I was literally right next to one. Of course I didn't have my camera, sorry.
okay, that's enough pointless ranting.

hugs and kisses from India,


  1. Hi Meg! I'm a long-time fan of your mom's and I have enjoyed peeking in on your adventure here. You are incredibly committed and tenacious - I don't think I could have done what you are doing. I am sure your family must be proud of you, and your experience will surely shape your future. It's my hope that my own kids will be brave enough to tackle whatever they are called to one day with the same spirit you have. Keep up the hard work and optimism. You are a blessing!

  2. Hello/Namaste Meg. :O) I happened to find ur blog thru "Simple Homeschool" emails. I have a heart for India, and my hubby & I have been to Mumbai, during May (HOT!), lol. I've read all ur posts and find it very interesting. I'm curious as to where you are, but realize u may not be able to say where. Yes, India is a crazy place, but as with most things, us humans learn how to adapt. Keep up the great work your doing, and enjoy this great opportunity. :)
