Wow…we are quite the adventurers! It seems like these couple of days in Guatemala have flown by. So fast in fact that my thoughts seem like a blur as I try to write. Yesterday was our “touristy” day in the city of Antigua. Part of our team went zip-lining, horseback riding, and I took a city tour and then did a chocolate tour. It was fabulous! I think everyone on our team is getting acclimated to a higher elevation, and the cool weather. What a shock that was! It is actually cold and rainy here, but even as I type there are people splashing in the pool just outside my window. Go figure!
Today was our first day at the center. I didn’t remember the first day being so exhausting, but I think trying to get a feel for what it will be like and actually being with the kids all day long wore me out! I feel so tired after playing all day. The center is beautiful and there have been many additions and changes since I was last here in 2014. Our team is spread out all over from an off-site day care center, to the day care children at the center, to the dolphins and canaries (the babies who need more care). I have heard wonderful stories today from all of the girls on our team. Be sure to check out Facebook for all of the pictures from today. They’re on my Facebook page.
Anyway- It’s dinner time, so I’ll update later tomorrow after our day at the center.
