Today was closing ceremonies in San Diego. The children were in their best dress and were just precious. Ariel, their principal thanked us for coming into their community and helping with the library. We thanked them for inviting us not only nto their community but also their homes. They sang their national anthem and performed a folk dance for us. We did a line dance, Sophie sang and Jessica and Violet shared a dance as well. It was a tear jerker. Just amazing. We had time to play/talk to the kids/parents and teachers. When it was time to go, tears were falling with the sadness of leaving our new friends but with the hope of seeing them again some day. We all hope so. The people and community have truly touched our hearts.

After a wonderful breakfast of chocolate pancakes and fruit we went to San Diego for our last work day. It was a hot day, but Jeff and Amy gave the girls a treat with an extra long break to play/interact with the kids. They had so much fun. Some girls played soccer while others showed the kids some hand games. What the kids loved was taking and being in pictures. After lunch and a refreshung swim, back to the site. Although we did not finish the school, the girls did a great job. Pedro, our foreman and his crew along with community members will finish the library.
