    ... fruit.

    The cucumbers and tomatoes were pretty easy to pick. The celery, I had to go upto the house to get a knife and just find a few nice stalks. The lettuce, I just popped out a full bunch with about 10 leaves. The bananas have already been picked off the tree but has a large group of bunches hanging for me to pick whenever they are yellow.

    ... had all people take a pill for worms before leaving. It was nice to see that people of any income level could get the care they need. Afterwards, I worked in the nurse's room to prepare people to see the doctor. I was really happy that I learned how to take blood pressure during my EMT training. We took people's blood pressure, weight, and height. We also took the height and weight of a kindergarten class. Finally, ...
