Where I stayed
Mascail Family Home
So our second excursion was this Saturday. All of the volunteers took our sponsor children to the beach to play in the water and have lunch together. It was a really good day. The weather wasn't that nice though actually. It rained off and on and we had to leave early because it got so windy. Since it was still warm outside we just stayed in the water while it rained though and it was still fun. The kids loved having us to hang all over. Towards the end it was only me and two of the other girl volunteers in the water and we were being trampled. There were so many children that wanted to hold on to us because the waves were getting so big. We all kept falling over with the children because we just couldn't hold their weight. No one got hurt though so I think they stilled enjoyed it. It was nice to spend time with Mary Rose I feel like she isn't as shy around me anymore.
Today (Sunday) I went to a movie with my host sister and another volunteer who lives at my home stay. It was interesting to go to their theater but it was pretty much like the ones in the US. Then at 5 I went to Mass with Mary Rose and her friend Mika another sponsored child. I had a lot of fun with them and I am really glad I get to spend time with them. I can tell they really enjoy it, not to sound self absorbed or anything.
Tonight I also went to a little cafe with some of the volunteers. The cafe is at the astrodome which is like a normal sports dome but they also have a bunch of little resturants, bars, and cafes. There are some children who go around selling peanuts and since we go there alot they always come to us because they know we will buy them. The other night I was there and had, had plenty of peanuts but he was still asking me to buy more. So I told him that I would be there tonight and bring stickers for him and buy some more. When I went tonight he saw me right away and came over to ask me to buy some. When I brought out the stickers he called tow of his friends over and got really excited. I gave them the stickers and then went into the cafe. Then a few minutes later they were knocking on the glass to show me the stickers stuck all over them. They were so adorable, they had them on their foreheads, chests, and arms. It definityly made my night.
Hope everything is going well in the US. I am beginning to miss it.
