Language Barriers

So the other week at church I saw a sign up list for people to volunteer at some ESL classes that the community has organized helping people who are trying to learn English.

It has been a while since I have volunteered for anything so I thought it wouldn't hurt to put my name down. I could step in for an hour here or there when needed, sure.

Well, I misunderstood the information I read and found out later that in putting my name down I had committed myself to TEACH the class EVERY Tuesday for the next 12 WEEKS!

Talk about a communication problem.

The cake was as delicious as it was beautiful:

The traditional first slice:

In lieu of gifts, the couple kindly asks that all congratulations be sent in the form of cash donations.
