Subject: My day at school

Today was the day that I will be volunteering at the youngest boy's school, Destino Del Reino.  I will be there on Wednesday mornings. We started off on the walk to the highway to catch the bus at 6:45 am.  It takes about 20-30 minutes with little guys and a slow Tia.  I think Mark usually makes it much faster.  But we had fun and got rained on.  I think they enjoyed playing and talking along the way.   We caught the school bus and all piled into a seat.  It was a fun ride!  The bus is packed with the children and the teachers.   At the school I helped in English class.  The president and founder teaches each grade in English for about 45 minutes.  It is a fun class time with a lot of movement, repitition, and fun.  They are learning phrases, animals, colors, numbers, expressions, alphabet, conversation, etc.  The kids are learning rapidly.  They really enjoy it and she has their attention.  She loves them and it shows.  I enjoyed learning, watching, and being a part of. Then after an early lunch and playtime, I joined Eli and Reynaldo's class for the rest of the time.  They are in what we would call Kinder, but here is Prepatoria.   It was good to see how the behave in class, how the class is run, and what is expected, and how things happen in class.  It will help me to help them set goals, understand how they can function in a active class, etc.   It seemed that they loved having me there, and I loved being there.  It was fun and I will look forward to it.  It is a beautiful place with much love and the Father's heart to raise up Godly children that will follow after Him.   This school is for children that can not afford school, and at this time goes up to 2nd grade, adding a grade every year.   Mark homeschooled ours this morning, and they enjoyed the break from Mom!  Why is dad always more fun........ Blessings, Paula
