Day Four

Today was a long, humid and super successful day in the field.  We returned to the same school as yesterday and were greeted with smiles and cheers.  It is so easy to fall in love with these sweet kids.
After playing for an hour or so we got to work.

While half of us painted, half of the team went room to room and acted out a bible story.

 We had lunch with the teachers and assistant principal of the school.  Working on the school we knew it looked much better, but until the lunch with the staff we didn't realize that painting the school changes the attitude for the children and makes them more eager to learn.

After dinner tonight one of our team members, Thalia taught an art lesson to the girls.  They were really engaged and enjoyed being able to learn about an artist and paint like them.

As I'm sitting here blogging, once again I can hear the frogs, birds and "screaming" bugs.
Everyone is getting ready for bed, we are all pooped!   Tomorrow we will go to the Granada Islands for some local history and a cultural experience.... while giving the staff a partial day off!

Hasta Luego
