Day 8: New adventure (camping and plunging)
An adventure indeed! We are going to scout out a completely new camping sight for us Micro kids. Last year’s sight is swamped over. This is going to be either the greatest or the worst experience ever, but that is the best part about adventures. You never know what is going to happen. My curiosity always gets the better of me. Well other than that, today was our first sleep in. I can not express the joy that all of us felt. We did have to get up early to work a little. I got right back into bed as soon as I was done. Our reward for working hard is 1 hour more of sleep and that is fine with me. Something I take for granted every Saturday has now become this special treat. Today their was nothing planned except for beginning our service learning. We started getting into a fascinating conversation about China’s historical events, specifically the cultural revolution. The whole concept just fascinates me. Mr.T wanted us to learn about this so we can understand where our elder service learning partners are coming from. It is a delicate topic to talk about for many of them. This was mainly the day. Oh and yes. How could I forget. First time plunging the toilet for my room. Mr. T walked in all official with the plunger to take down our clogged toilet. We all stood by in fear as he was saying, “this would make excellent blogging material,” and this is why I have mentioned it. When your teacher has taught you how to plunge a toilet, it shows how close we have all become. We are almost like a family.
