Random Fun :)

Here's a couple of random pics from the things I've been doing lately :)
My mom teaches ESL (English as a Second Language) at FBC in Tally, so when I'm in town, I go with her to her class and help out. We have the very beginners that don't really speak any English at all. It's a very fun class! Anyway, this past Tuesday night, we had a Thanksgiving banquet with the Students and their friends. We met some new South Asian friends and had a lot of fun! :) At the end, some of the students played instruments and some sang. One lady from Russia played the accordian and sang - it was so fun! The picture below is of my friend from Japan playing the Sanshin and singing - it was really neat! Aashini loved all the music :) The pic below is of me and my friend Nisay. She's from Cambodia. She's really cool and has a really cool story. Right now she's at school at Florida State. Adam & I want to visit her in Cambodia when she's back there in a few years.
Last weekend Aashini and I met my friend Christine (Left) at FSU before the football game. It was Homecoming and she was twirling her baton at the game. It was so great to see her and catch up :) We also ran into another good friend from College - Ann Marie (middle) :)

That's all for now, Adam & I head out to New Orleans & Slidell tomorrow :) Whoo hoo!!! The last time we were there was 3 weeks before Hurricane Katrina came through - it's going to be so different - it will be interesting to see the changes. When we were getting directions to our friend's house we're staying at, we told them to just give us the address and we'd Google it - they said: "you can do that, but it won't help you, there aren't many street signs left". Wow!

I can't wait to see everyone!
