Line 'Em Up, Move 'Em Out

Avid readers of this blog will remember my post from way back in October about the Chinese family residing in my library. Well my friends, I neglected to mention the little soiree we recently had in the faculty room in their honor: apparently, two of them are now U.S. citizens.

I know I cannot do it justice here, I won't even try to recreate it. But it did almost bring a tear to my eye. They didn't even need to bust out the talking translator.

Then there was the red, white, and blue cake, diligently divided into chocolate and vanilla squares among the teachers. How very American of us. "Welcome, Chinese compadres, here is your ceremonial induction cake!"
