I'm not one for dressing up but after being told by various people that everyone wears a costume I decided to make a bit of an effort.

Volunteering at the Colegio

... so it was really sad on Monday. We learned Christmas words Monday, and then they drew pictures that went with the words. Their drawings were so cute!
