Beijing, China

Myshel was offered an amazing opportunity this fall. Her principal chose her and one other student out of 50-60 kids taking Chinese to go to Beijing, China in September!

The principal was invited to come to Beijing by Mt. Ararat's (High School here) Chinese teacher's former headmaster. What a mouthful! They'll be gone for 8 days. Myshel will stay with a host family from that school and attend school with her for several days. She'll also get to see historical and cultural sites while she's there, too. The principal and the chairwoman of the foreign lauguage dept. and one other boy will be going with her.

We're very, very excited for her, sometimes a little scared and nervous, but mostly very excited. I think it's such a great opportunity to see how they live and the schools and the cultures first hand and wow what an experience! We're so proud of her for being chosen among her class mates for this.

So now we're busy getting a passport and visa, immunizations, and saving our extra pennies on top of planning a trip to Wyoming this summer.
