Had a great time at the literacy course today. I left the class on a bit of a high, which felt good! One of the ladies that is struggling to make progress, actually appeared to be making real progress today. I pointed to various pictures and she was able to point to the letter which marked the first sound of each picture. It was only using three letters, but this is a big step for her. She has been getting so frustrated and discouraged, especially since some of the other ladies are streets ahead of her, but judging by the smile on her face today, she got a real boost. Hopefully this will be the start of her "catching on". Another lady, however, who joined us late is still struggling majorly. Watching the first lady appear to catch on to some things today, gives me hope that she too will catch on in due time.
Then there are some of the other ladies who continue to do really well. They are also encouraging. And then there is Gami, a lady who comes almost every week to help me out. I am so thankful for her commitment and dedication. She is always willing to help students that are struggling, to do some extra work with some students where it is needed. What a blessing she is!
Anyhow, thought I would just share the days joys with you all.
BTW, Andrew went back to the dr on Tuesday morning as his ear was getting sore again and the other ear was sore as well. I told him that he was not allowed to wait another day before going back, and given the way his ear turned out last time, he did not argue. Turns out the bad ear is still infected and an infection was creeping inside the other ear too! So back on the antibiotics and he's doing okay. Doesn't feel 100% but good enough to do work as per normal...
