... headed to the public school to spend 3 hours painting classrooms. It was hot and exhausting, and tricky to do without water or rags. Once again, however, the kids stepped up with such eagerness, and worked till it was done.
Exhausted, we returned for a simple dinner and a quiet evening. I think I played hearts-- yes, with Adonis. Teaching a new game with lots of rules in another language seemed like 'doing the most' but seņor was able to explain it and we played till lights ...
