Day 13: Kelcie’s Reflections

Today (Saturday) the education team began the day by teaching at Caminante. It was a great teaching session devoted to children’s right and feelings. The kids and adults that attended the lesson were so attentive and really understood what we were trying to teach them. Some individuals shared really personal stories about their lives that added a great deal of “realness” to the discussion. After the morning teaching session, the education and nursing teams spent the rest of the day together with Julito’s boys. It was a great time filled with laughs, games, and swimming in the ocean! We first started out by making coconut jewelry with the boys at La Cosona. It was a wonderful experience and the boys really liked teaching us their trade. We all had the opportunity to buy some of the jewelry the boys made, which was really special for us. Once we were done with that activity, we took all the boys back to the beach where we swam and played games on the sand. We drew quite a crowd with our games and even got some of the onlookers to play with us. It was also Junior’s 15th birthday (one of Julito’s boys) and we surprised him by throwing a mini-party for him. We got a cake and candles that were really hard to blow out! It was a great day filled with lots of fun and laughs, and a great time spent with the boys.
