After quite a sabbatical, we finally started back to Chinese lessons with our favorite lǎo shī, Mei! We are meeting in her apartment in the city for lessons, which is great for me because I get to cuddle her sweet new bundle of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Everyone had a blast, including Lovebug, who typically tells me he does not like learning Chinese. He even commented to me afterward about how much fun he had this time – I think he surprised himself! They mostly reviewed everything they’ve learned in previous lessons, but they have a few new verbs and nouns to study as well. I’m so excited to be back into a normal routine and it was simply wonderful to see Mei again after so long!
