Okay! So my birthday was pretty darned fun, though I didn't actually do tons of stuff. I'll try to let the pictures tell the story of this past week at school (a phonics blitz!) and just tell you that I learned the importance of tying your bike up out of the rain when there's the possibility of stormy weather on the horizon and how to say that I need to inflate my tire! 'Fon' is 'rain', 'fon-tok' is 'it's raining', and 'fon-tok na' is 'it's raining heavily' or 'heavy rain' or anything heavy, really, that's what the 'na' means. Neat, right? Smile. I also learned that 'tire' is 'law' where your voice goes up and down ('law' with a low tone is 'handsome', with a rising tone is 'loose' [I learned that when my paw-aw got a haircut and I accidentally said his hair looked loose...much laughter!], and 'tire' is with a rising and falling tone, like you're being super-sarcastic). It was a birthday of much learning, smile.
Saturday, my actual birthday, I don't have pictures of because it was the storm and flat-tire adventure as I found a place I could phone my family. It's been a busy week, and right now, Sunday afternoon, fon-tok na!
