My small group came over yesterday for a craft afternoon. This age group(8th graders) is so fun because they still really like projects like this.
I love the diversity of my group! Andrea (Dutch), Jenai (Irish), Christa (American), Randra (Madagascar), Jessi (Swiss), and Samael (Tanzanian). Hannah (Korean) wasn't there. I wish I could tell you all the wonderful things these girls' parents are doing throughout Tanzania, but this isn't the place to write about it. HOPAC has only 8 boarding students and 3 of them are in my group!
Grace totally amazed me yesterday. She wanted to participate too, so she got set up at the table with pony beads and yarn, and she spent almost 2 hours stringing those beads! When she ran out and wanted more, we took all her beads off the string and she did it over again! Love the tongue--total concentration. :-)
