Hey! Its Sydney on day 8 of our trip, and it couldn’t be better. This morning we were able to finish digging the trenches for the school’s foundation. The school has come so far already, I can’t believe it. Though with only a few days left here in Mukli we won’t be able to completely finish the school I am grateful to have contributed as much as we could.
Along with work we have been able to spend time with the kids at the school too. Shawn taught a second-grade class and we were able to help out. The kids are so much fun and super energetic. Whenever our group plays signs or volleyball they always crowd around us and watch, laughing whenever Chesley shows off his moves or one of us messes up.
Having the kids around and playing with them is a constant reminder of who we are building the school for and why we are here. It constantly amazes me how naturally happy they are even without nice classrooms and the technology kids in America rely on.
After working we were able to join The Small World staff in an intense volleyball match. Through rain and sun we played, not caring how dirty we got and putting our skills to the test, though mine were severely lacking.
We ended the eventful day with some amazing momos and a couple good rounds of signs with the guys. Can’t wait for more fun!
