On Friday LEI had our graduation ceremony. It was a really good time. Though I have attended some graduations in the U.S. in the last few years, I have not actually participated in a graduation for many years. Here at LEI the students have worked hard during the past year to increase their English language skills. And the teachers worked so hard during the year as well. Way to go everyone!!!!!!!
For me, it has been a rewarding two months since Kathy and I have arrived here in Mongolia. So much has happened in our lives recently. All in all it has been a great experience. Kathy and I will be working part of the summer, traveling for a part of it, and spending time with people, studying Mongolian, and preparing for the fall semester.
