From the Journal of: Yamaris
Today was very fun. The kids had a field day and we played games with them. It was cute seeing the games that they grew up with and it was fun teaching them the games we grew up with. All together I was surprised because some of the games we thought they wouldn’t know they did in fact know. We played telephone in three languages: English, Spanish and Kaqchikel. One message made it all the way through without being altered. We learned their version of duck, duck, goose.This experience made me glad that what I am doing is helping the youth do something in their lives. I`m glad to know the students who will benefit from the school I am building and actually put real faces to the cause.
