so the day began rather interesting, kids singing, no power, no water....and a pig being slaughtered! we had hot dogs with lunch? i hope it wasnt that piggy..lol power and water came back on after a little while.
after breakfast Me and Ali got to hang out with 12 kids till lunch..just 4 of them at time there between 2 and 5 yers old and then we whent down to the main house for lunch the food isnt that bad. and then we had one babie each at time for just over an hour we sat with them out on the balcony under the warm sun!.. i got a nice burn because one my twins decided to have a nap so i napped too and woke with a burn!..lol
a few of us volunteers and a baybie each whent for a little walk the people around here are really nice, we got some snacks from a little market thingy, the view is so beautiful when its really clear if you look down the valley you can see the ocean faraway!
