So let's start with yesterday. Nikki spent the morning, and we mean all morning, slicing the ends of the green beans. When you think Smile have to feed 150plus people, that equates to a lot of beans! At 1 point, she was able to sit in the sun and do this, so all is not lost!
AnnaKins spent the morning in Preschool. She had the fun task of teaching the kiddies to write the letter "E" and create a lovely worksheet entitled "Match the Letters". Such joy was found in this!
Caroline spent the morning "painting" the dining room with Ruthie Baby. The room is now glowing with yellowness, as is most of the floor! We also entertained ourselves with our very own warpaint!
The afternoon was spent in Hambantota town, as we needed to pick up a few things. E.g. Simcards, phones, henna and use the Internet café. The Internet was fixed this morning so all is well. Twas also very amusing to see a goat poking out of a bin outside one of the shops. We were too late to avail of this photo opportunity as the goat scampered off. After that, AnnaKins, Ruthie Baby and Jackson headed for a swim again. No monkeys were seen, only the odd bat!
For the night's entertainment, we tried to copy Nikki and Holly's party tricks i.e. the splits and an acrobatic broom extravaganza. We all failed miserably, except for Ruthie Baby and AnnaKins. After that, it was down to some good all card games.
So this morning AnnaKins and Ruthie Baby painted 1 of the bedrooms, again it looks like a lovely big bowl of custard! Jackson went to Preschool and did some painting with the children and played with the parachute. In the afternoon most of us hung around the Afterschoolers. AnnaKins and Jackson had great fun playing with worms with Sadeecha and Tirindu (staff children). However the most exciting part of the day was our first team visit to Food City. Alas it was an exciting time all round as we taught Teshani (teacher's daughter) to say "What's the craic" on the bus down. Jackson tried to have a conversion using some sinhala out of a phrase book, to which their response was they understand her more when she speaks English.
So what's in store for tonight? Well after some chicken drumsticks, we are chilling in front of a DVD while covering ourselves in henna......rock on!
