"Janeth, Anaya – vengan a correr!" That was how my day started right off the bat. So we ran to first base, a.k.a. the kitchen table. We were served quinoa soup with veggies and sat down to eat as a family. Soon enough we gathered our stuff and were out the door to meet everyone else. As we got to the school, we walked a little bit to great our students. A couple of minutes later we were joined by our students, and everyone else went to their assigned places. For our classes, we played the games "Lava" and "Red light, Green light". Aside from dying of laughter, I also realized something that was happening to me. I felt myself caring for every single one of my students. If I saw one not having fun, I would try my best for them to be included. I even asked a couple of kids that were not in our class to come join. It feels good to include the kids around here because they don't have this all the time.
After going to school and getting some lunch at the foundation, we headed towards the waterfall. Seeing the waterfall for the first time was breath taking. I had never seen an actual waterfall, so to me it was amazing. I really enjoyed the scenery as well as the alone time we were given. There I reflected back on life and thank God for everything I have. Sometimes you need a reality check to realize that you need to stay humble and appreciate everything you have. In the words of Ice Cube, "today was a good day!"
P.S. Magali broke her toe nail going into the waterfall and then laughed, which made me laugh, which made my day with her laughter.
