Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day from Valdivia, Chile! This morning, Alejandra, one of my 8th graders gave me this card. Adorable. 

Card from Alejandra :)

Being abroad for your country’s main holiday is always interesting. I notice I always have more pride, but at the same time I keep my mood toned down a bit. (I mentioned that it was 4th of July to one of my other classes, and a few kids just went “bluggghh…”)

My 8th grade class brought in completos today. A “completo” is a typical Chilean snack, kind of like our hot dog. Theirs comes with avocado, ketchup, mustard, tomatos, onions and mayonaise. Happy 4th!
