Ping Pong In The George

One of the side benefits of Z going to Georgetown Prep is that the school is like a small college campus, complete with a student center where the boys hang out. And, once in a while, this dad...

Our time in China has whetted our appetites for ping pong (see here, here, and here for some our "ping pong diplomacy"). Thanks to the table in "The George" (as the George Center is affectionately known), Z gets to play ping pong on a daily basis, during lunch and the long break between classes. (Never mind the issue about whether he should be eating better and getting a head start on homework!)

As for me, on those occasions when I swing by campus, for a football game, for a parent meeting, I make a beeline for the table, which, by the way, doesn't have a proper net. (You would think that the boys could secure and maintain a net for their table...I may have to start carrying one in the back of the minivan!)

With all of this practice, just wait until we get back to Yan Bei Yuan...We may actually be able to compete with Chinese retirees!
