Yup, another typhoon ruining a perfectly good weekend. We’d planned on going to the kite festival but that won’t happen. This sunday is also Teacher’s day which in Taiwan is to commemorate the birth of Confucius. My students pampered me on Friday with cards and flowers and actually doing their homework, while my request for a gift of a new house in Hawaii was ignored. However, one student generously offered me the use of his family’s Hawaiian home for a vacation… I’ll have to follow up on that one!

I put up Halloween decorations today in the afternoon when Ahji took the kids down to the community playroom to blow off some steam from being inside all day. Jaylene loved the surprise, but enjoyed the fact that she’s tall enough to touch the end of the dangly ones even more. If you participate in Halloween, when do you put decorations up? What decorations do you use?
