Week 2!

Our first day back at FUNDAC after an action packed weekend was a more laid back one. We started off with another one of our delicious breakfasts at the hotel. We had French toast, croissants, and a strange-looking fruit that was like a kiwi on the inside.

We arrived at FUNDAC to see the maestro already hard at work on the sandbox walls. We were joined by several parent volunteers again, who helped to move a big stack of pavers as well as a large pile of gravel. I spent most of the day helping the maestro build the walls. He is slowly giving me more and more tasks. Today I helped mix cement, put the cement on the top of the wall for new blocks, and filled in the cracks with cement.

Missy spent most of the morning sorting out the huge number of children’s pants that she collected as a donation for the center. It is an impressive amount of pants!

Jenn spent most of the day inside the center, helping make the Valentine’s bunnies, cleaning, and feeding the children. Both Missy and Jenn also spent some time helping out outside from time to time.

The afternoon was much like the morning, with more wall building, child feeding, and Valentine making. There was also, of course, the occasional playtime with the kids, both indoors and out.

Week two seems more relaxed than the first week. I think we are all becoming more comfortable with each other and our roles. The laughs come easily these days, both from kids and adults, too!
