Peanut Butter Perfection

Last week a bunch of the women were cooking a big meal for our first Ladies Night. It happened to also be a day when various people were coming and going from Dave and Erin’s house. So while we were cooking our dear friend Issa (from Israel) poked his head in as he was leaving. For some reason he said, “You know, in American movies I always see people eating spoonfuls of peanut butter. And I don’t get it.” To which Erin replied, “Well, have you ever had peanut butter?” And he said, “No.” All of the Americans knowingly looked at one another and decided that this situation needed to be remedied. So Erin got out her treasured supply of peanut butter, lovingly sent from family and friends at home, and she handed him a spoon. 

Ready...

Wait for it... wait for it...

Deep contemplation of this yummy new substance on the palette

And then he understood. No words were needed, because no words can capture the greatness of The Peanut Butter. His smile said it all. Next week we'll have to introduce him to the wonders of PB&J... it will blow his mind.

We can buy Skippy peanut butter here, but only in smaller jars. And there is this other kind called Ligo. Preston bought it the last time we needed PB. It seems to not have enough fat in it or something because it's really hard to spread.

Anyway, we mostly play Hangman or bingo because they are easy. As for speaking games... I was thinking about making a Jeopardy game where the kids have to answer questions and then I will give them some fake money we have here. Maybe something like Pictionary would be good too. Since one kid would have to know the word to be able to draw it and the rest would have to figure it out. As for a writing game, I haven't done this yet, but I plan to. I will divide the class into two teams and have the alphabet written down the left side of a piece of paper. It will be like a relay race, the first kid has to write a word that starts with A then pass it to the kid behind her and that kids write a word that starts with B and so on. Koreans are very competitive, so games like this get crazy but they are also fun. I don't know if that will help... looks like you are having fun there!
