5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

When the teacher told us that he hoped we can participate in the Webpage contest, we all surprised! Actually let us make Webpage, and the teacher said that he also can not make it, nobody can teach us, so we only learnt with the teacher, and then made the webpage by ourselves! We were not confident, can we do? When the teacher said: 'never mind, as long as you work hard to do, whether we are win or lose, we benefit a lot even if finally we do not complete it!' We all laughed! Yeah, not bad! After more than a month of hard work, we can successfully make Webpage content and carry out a simple picture processing from a stranger, it is really not easy, but we are successful, we finished Webpage! It really is 'if you put your heart into it'!
