23rd September 2012, by Laura

I think the highlight of this week was definitely our trip to the waterfall yesterday.  It was beautiful and the water was really spraying from the falls getting everyone wet.  Almost everyone got in the water and swam for a while.  When we got back we got to celebrate two birthday parties, Ratwi and Annie.  We got a bunch of different flavors of ice cream and everyone just grabbed a spoon and dug in.

Today, the three Chinese volunteers, Annie, Aaron, and Miranda, all left.  We are really going to miss them! Now it is just me and Jess here to teach all of the classes! They taught the kids origami and Chinese stories and music, which is great that the kids get to learn about other cultures.  At least we got to go on a trip to the Saturday night market before they left.  We went to pass out flyers for our upcoming fundraising event but also to have a little fun too.  We tried all kinds of interesting food and just had a good time together.

Our fundraiser is Friday and we have another trip planned with the kids on Saturday so, this week should be full of excitement! I’m looking forward to it!
