The teacher cadet program is also fun because the kids are just wonderful. I've been sitting in on my host mother's classroom which is a third grade classroom. I answer the kids questions and help her organize her papers for handing out. It really gives a classroom experience.
Government, Music Tech, and AP Human Geography are also all fun. I love learning about how the government works and about some of the laws. The teacher also talks about some of the news that she hears on the television. It's nice to talk about what's happening out in the real world at the same time. I'd really love to continue taking it if Maumee Valley has it. Music Tech is great because we started a whole new song to learn. I took some time but on the quiz that we took I got a 99%. It isn't bad though considering that I just started the guitar from scratch! We've started working on duet songs. AP Human Geography has really picked up since we've started talking about culture and religion. I really enjoy learning about the other areas of the world and people's different beliefs.
Oh! And I almost forgot to mention about how the weekend went. A friend from school and I went to downtown Charleston.We stopped by the piers and got to see the pineapple fountain. It's a really cool fountain that I saw some of the newscasters standing in front of when I was watching the news.. After that we went to the market which was really fun. I got some more souvenirs and a couple of scarves for myself. Then after getting lost for about half an hour we finally found King St. It's a street fuuuullll of shops and that day - being the 2nd Sunday of the month - the street was closed to cars. So there were people walking on the streets with their dogs and some of the restaurants set up tables outside. Eventually we stopped and had some beef hot-dogs. They were amazing and the guy told us that they were voted to have the best hot-dogs in Charleston three years in a row. After that we had a 30 minute run around the King St. Game where we tried to find the car. Eventually we did and just in time to make it to Boone Hall Plantation. We walked around the plantation and took tons of pictures. It was extremely beautiful!
Oh and I forgot to mention that on Saturday we went to the local Boeing plant. It's a factory where airplanes are made. Not just anybody can get in on a regular bases but that day it was open to volunteers and factory workers and their families. We volunteered but then got to go around some of the plant and it was HUGE! For being an airplane factory though it was extremely nice inside and out. Inside the beams on the ceiling were different colors so it fave this really nice feel to the entire place. A lot of the inside was made of class like MV is and it was really nice.
