I know, I know, it’s been a long time. I’ve been so insanely busy lately. But I’m trying to get back in the habit and write on a regular basis. For now, I just have a short post with some pictures.

First, some fun with my new kids-this week we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and did some art projects to go with it. (Pipe cleaners are awesome!)

Thursday Jess and I wandered around Lido, the area where I often work, and today we took a picnic to Chaoyang Park and pretended we were 8 years old again:

The atrium of the Indigo mall in Lido-it looks a little abstract from the fourth floor

The tall super skinny building on the right is one side of the apartment complex where my school is-really nice area.
Captain America promotion
There was a huge screening set up in the lobby of the mall this week-some kind of special promotion for the new Captain America movie. There were lines of people outside to greet some of the stars, but we watched the hubbub from the top floor-

Found this drive-in on the road near where I work-definitely need to go back!

Delicious, almost healthy, picnic today in Chaoyang Park!

One attempt at flying our kite…
bubble fun
Why are bubbles so much fun? This was super relaxing!

Otherwise, I don’t have much to tell at the moment. I have a lot of work to get done this month for my final portfolio project so I can graduate-FINALLY-at the end of June.
