This week also saw our 6 month traveling anniversary! It is absolutely crazy to think that we have been traveling for 6 months, it only feels like two minutes since we left home and we can’t believe how far we have come and how much we have experienced in the last 6 months. It has been an incredible journey so far.
This week was also our second week of volunteering for ChildTRAC. We are really starting to get our teeth into our work now; Tom has tackled tons of IT problems and I feel like I am making great progress with the Sponsor a Child program
But today we weren’t working in the office; today we were going back up to the nursery to tackle the mural which Tom has designed. He managed to get some of it drawn out during our visit last week before the children mobbed him but there was still tons of work to be done. So we all rolled up our sleeves and as Tom was drawing the mural on the wall, we were following him around the room painting it all in. It took 6 of us all day to get it done but it was worth it. By the end of the day the room looked absolutely incredible! We were all getting really choked up at the end because the nursery owners were telling us that they knew the children would love it. I was so proud of Tom; he planned the whole thing, drew it all by hand without any help, designed the colour scheme and even helped out with the painting! He achieved something wonderful for the children at the nursery and he deserves to feel really proud of himself.
Well done Tom, it looked amazing! xxx
