!Hola mis amigas y familias! ?Que tal?
Today was super swaggy! Fvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvirst we ate the normal breakfast mentioned in earlier vlogs^^ and then went on our way to La Carpio for our last day there. Then, we went to the house we have been working on for the past few days to finish up our work there. We started painting the bars and then proceeded to split up into two groups, one group (my group) headed to the school we went to yesterday, and then the others stayed to continue applying the finishing touches. The kids were super cute today, and many liked playing with our cameras (I taught one how to take focus the camera and then take a picture, and he was amazing at it!). We colored, painted, and played for about an hour or so, and practiced our Spanish skills (super rewarding when you connect with them!).
Then my group switched with the others, and we continued to paint the inner walls purple/ the outer walls and bars. Finally, we finished the house and went over to the Humanitarian Foundation’s base for lunch. We ate a delicious lunch of lentils, bread, mango, watermelon, salad, rice, and other yummy food. After lunch, we met our younger friends and headed to El Museo de los Ninos, where we had 2-1 kids per person to keep track of and play with throughout the museum. Everyone was thrilled and muy emocianado! in the museum. My kids loved hiding from me, so it is here where we see the usage of our most used word of the day. Lots of boogers were transferred from noses to hold hands, but all in all, it was an amazing experience. I wish we had a museum like that in America because it would have been so much fun as a kid (although I still had an amazing time being **14**).
We headed home while my kids made farting noises in the back of the bus, which was delish! After arriving back to La Carpio, we grabbed some snacks in the grocery store. We continued home and finally arrived after much traffic delay. Dinner was lasagna, bread, and salad while dessert was popsicles! Thanks for tuning in to day 4! See you next time! Adios/Chao!
