Aloha, loa shi men and tong xue men:
Congratulations! After three rounds of review/evaluation, you are selected to participate.....
Chance, our little deaf Chance who worked his little buns off to learn English for years, has been selected to attend a language camp that only selects 20 kids each summer. TO LEARN MANDARIN! He is so excited!!
We are excited for him and busily planning out details like.....how the heck is Chance going to get himself out of bed for the 3 weeks of camp? We need some help from people who know. How do you all wake up? I have talked about this before, but waking Chance is like waking the dead. We had one of those vibrating alarms that shook and Chance didn't wake up to that....unless it was on the side of his face or right under his head. I don't know that we can count on the alarm staying in either of those positions all night long. Especially when if Chance doesn't get up on time, he will miss camp. There is a time change involved as well, so Chance will have to adjust to that.
Do you see why we may have some concerns as Chance's parents?
CHANCE GOT IN TO THE PROGRAM!! Who could have imagined this day when he was a little 3 year old preschooler with the goal to hear and respond to his name in English?
Now we just have to get him to wake up:)
