Ending on a high note

My last few days of volunteering have definitely not been boring! The kids don’t even know it’s my last week, but they are still making life fun!

Things that have happened this week:

  • A little girl threw up all over herself and the little boy sitting next to her – fortunately they were outside. They do have a shower here to wash them when these things happen! I didn’t know! The little boy was sitting there with puke on him for a few minutes when I finally took him and washed it off his legs. No one noticed lol. The little girl was still seated for lunch. She didn’t eat.
  • A little boy peed himself and continued to sit in it looking at himself until someone noticed and took him to the shower. He did the same thing the next day only he was standing outside. Just stood looking at the wet ground until someone took him away. He did it again today. Is this a hat trick?
  • A little girl tried to bite me.
  • Massive food fights in the cafeteria (I cheated though because that happens every day)

It’s been a busy, tiring and ultimately fun 4 weeks of volunteering.  I don’t know if I could do it again, but am glad to have experienced it once. I had to take a bunch more photos today after their nap time because they are very cute between all the biting, kicking, crying and peeing.
