I guess the flight mascot for the training squadron I am in is the pirate, so here is a little sketch I did as a prep for a flag I would like to paint, then I decided to create my own personal pirate flag just for fun! I invite you over to the flag blog and check it out: http://myownpirateflag.blogspot.com

We had a wonderful picnic today to celebrate the completion of our testing Unit 2 and the first of the Proficiency tests. It was fun to have my wife and the two youngest children there. I am glad everyone else came and got to enjoy a little bit of a relaxed atmosphere, I just hope we can be professional on monday. All of the teachers were there and it was interesting to see some of their personality outside the class room.

This is our teacher that really works with us in a loud way that we talk with great fluency. He is fun to speak with, as his thick, deep accent keeps us on our toes and pushes our ability to listen and understand. I really enjoy the way he connects each word together with their derivatives and encourages us study the dictionary as much as is applicable.
As for the picture he made the mistake of telling us he use to have a big afro as a kid.

When I get to class and I don't try to warm up my own arabic ears for the listening of the day this is how I feel as the teachers come in and start to use the target language or have us listen to a new passage, it almost hurts! I love arabic, shukran al-arabi!
