"au" 会う which means "to meet". And tonight I met (some) parents at the school's "Meet The Teacher" night.
It wasn't anything particularly lengthy since the parents would visit each of their student's 4 teachers for 10 minutes at a time, and not many showed up (3 parents in one of my classes, and 5 in the other) but it was nice to see that some parents have an interest in their child's education. Even more interesting is that sometimes the similarities are apparent and you can almost guess who their child is as soon as they walk in the door.
Next up? The Canadian Men's Hockey team as they take on Slovakia in the semi-finals...
Here's the entire Team Canada roster.
