From the Journal of: Melissa
Today was awesome. We did a lot of activities and I had a lot of fun. We played a lot of games and I learned a lot. The games were in English, Spanish and the native language of the Comalapan people. I was really happy with the way the kids responded to us. They were all welcoming. They were also eager to learn which encouraged me to be more engaged. I also feel like I had the chance to immerse myself in their culture. I was also surprised to see how good the kids are at playing soccer. Even the youngest one could kick a ball as far as I could. The kids’ warm attitude toward learning and playing make me more eager to help and learn.
