Good Morning, team! We woke up this morning from a great night of sleep and ate French toast and an assortment of leftovers. After breakfast, we packed up to go to Dew Drops. It was a blast in the swagger wagon, with most of the group belting out the lyrics to our newly written song called “China. Our band is very prolific, but most of our lyrics consist of only the word, “China. When we were at Dew Drops, we quickly picked up “our babies” and rocked and played until it was unfortunately time to go. We miss our babies soooo much and we can’t wait until the next time we can go back to Dew Drops to cuddle them! We arrived at HQ and got ready to go, of course, after some delicious grilled cheese sandwiches! From HQ to the art district was one of the most fun times we have had in the swagger wagon, and actually exploring the art district was even more amazing. We saw so many great pieces of art, such as murals and sculptures and even a room filled with dirt and cool paintings. We tried gelato and Chinese iced coffee, and we got lost and found a new friend from Germany (shoutout to Lottie!!) Dinner consisted of sweet and sour chicken with fried riced and veggie dishes, and we are so excited that we get to go to our favorite mall, WuMart, tonight!! Today has been so fun and it has raised our expectations for tomorrow. We’ll let you know all about it of course, when we write tomorrow!
