First day of Turkish School~ 2011


Our neighborhood School 
in our little west corner of Turkey.

Here begins another here of being the learner for me as a mom with two of my kids in Turkish School. Autumns workbooks are harder for me this year as I am probably only at a 2nd grade level in reading when it comes to Turkish. ugh :) However I have last year under my belt so I am hoping that my learning curve will not be quite as high. 





Today there was a meeting for the parents of Autty's 2nd grade class.  As the teacher talked I probably only got 65% or what he was saying, (especially with Isaac next to me distracting me) however I did understand when he thanked me and then invited me back this year to continue to do the "Craft/English' times with the class I started last year.

See Investing in the Neighborhood School Series~ click here #1#2, and #3.

My daughter asked me if I was going to come back to her class this year and do the 'craft time'.  I asked her if she wanted me to and she said yes, and that is all I needed to know. So I will be continuing investing in the neighborhood school this year with craft projects that cost next to nothing.  We shall see what God helps me come up with this year. :) Sometimes I love the challenge and sometimes I don't. :)

From my corner of the world.

I just love what you're doing. Thank you for sharing the real parts of your world - that sometimes you love the challenge and sometimes you don't. I'm asking God to give you fun, simple, creative ideas that will cause those children to see that being creative is a reflection of the Creator. You're a gift to them in their own little space. Be encouraged. What you're giving has eternal ramifications.

I love your pictures! Especially the one of the three of you. May God bless your girls during their second year of Turkish school. Doing a crafts class is a GREAT way to shine your light!

Hey Becky - again, we don't know each other but I've commented on your blog before. We are friends with Aaron & Consuelo. We live in Idealtepe. Anyway, just a question for you - this is the first year all of our kids are in the local public school. My oldest is in Gr. 2, and seems to have TONS of homework!!! Is this normal for T.ksh schools?? She probably spends 2-3 hours on homework every evening. I suppose it takes longer cuz my husband and I FIRST need to translate everything (*grin*), but still seems a bit crazy.

Also wanted to make my blog available to you, if you'd like. It's a private blog, but if you send me your email address, I could invite you. Let me know...
