May Day, Shaolin Warriors and more...




Today is May Day and it kicks off a week-long national holiday. No school, no ayis, lots of stuff closed.. We are going to Guizhou on Weds. evening. it is a South Central Chinese province, supposed to be very pretty and pretty poor and remote. It is dominated by Miao minority... same as the Hmong, in laos, Cambodia, vietnam.

It is nice to have a quiet day today, with kids just playing and being home unprogrammed.

Saturday night, we went and saw the Shaolin Warriors show. They were really good and all the kids, including Anna but especially Jacob, were really enraptured. At one point, they brought all the kids up and had them do some exercises. They were all into it. Anna brought down the house. She was really adorable.
