Bracelet making 101
Today I got to help a whole bunch of kids make bracelets out of embroidery thread. It was overwhelming at first, but it got better when they started to learn. Each was taught with the help of an interpreter. they were so proud when they finished....both boys and girls. There must have been 30 of them! It's sunny and 90 here. I heard it's snowing in Ohio. You could be here next year enjoying this weather and all of these fun, happy kids! Most of the kids we were with are my age so it was fun to play games with them like relays, basketball games, soccer games. They just love to have fun with us. We enjoy them too. Swimming was fun yesterday, but I got a lot of salt in my mouth. The waves were very big. The whole team was out in the water, and we had a life guard on a surf board with us to monitor the cross currents for us. His name was Alex and he was a surfer as well. It was tiring to be in the waves, but very refreshing after a long hot day. More fun at the school now as we go back to paint!
