 梅花

 

Meihua is doing well these days. Her father now is a cook for Jiaguan school (where Meihua is, earning 600 Yan per month, food included), mom works in the school’s laundry room (500 per month, food not included). Meihua lives in a room in the school with her parents. The family finally could stay together, they are very happy about it. Dad and mom get along well with their new colleagues.    

 

Meihua studies very hard. She was one of the top three of her class in recent tests. She didn’t learn English before, so needed work more on her English. Early this month, she toured Beijing with her class. The school waived all the fees for her family. They went to many interesting places. It was an eye opening tour for her.  She also visited The French Friendship School in Beijing. Meihua’s mom often needed to carry her on her back go up and down, it was quite tiring for her.

 

During the winder break, she is going to The Provincial Hospital to get a new pare of prosthetic legs. I’m going to visit her before The New Year. I’ll forward your regards to her. Thank you for thinking of her.

 

Chengdu is not too cold, about 7-10 Celsius. We like to see snow, but there is no snow here in the winter.

Chengdu, Dec. 2009

 

梅花现在很好,爸爸在光亚学校的食堂做厨师(每月六百,包吃),妈妈在学校洗衣房工作(每月五百,不包吃),梅花和父母同住学校的一个寝室里,一家人能生活在一起,是开心的事。爸爸妈妈和同事也相处不错。

 

梅花学习很刻苦,这向考试都是班上前三名,只是英语以前没学过,还需努力,这个月她参加了学校组织的班级北京游活动,校方免除了她和妈妈的全部费用,北京一行,她去了很多地方,开了眼界,还和那边法国友谊学校做了交流。梅花说需要妈妈背上背下,有点累,呵呵!

 

寒假她会到成都省医院安装修复假肢,节前我也会到都江堰光亚学校去看她,我会带去你们的问候。谢谢你们对梅花的挂念!

 

成都现在不算太冷,也就七-十度左右,其实我很想看雪,可惜成都冬天是不下雪的,呵呵!
