Today we woke up with many expectations.  Breakfast was interesting but delicious.  Then family time started at eight.  We could all feel the anxiety and excitement as we listened to Elizabeth talk and explain what was going to happen.  After we closed in prayer everyone went off to get their final belongings including forgotten name tags and duffel bags filled with supplies.  We boarded the bus and enjoyed the scenery along the way as well as the expert driving skills of our bus driver.  As we approached the village everyone stared at the village, but not for long because our driver needed to turn around.  Finally arriving we all hurried into the school to drop off our bags and waited for the opening prayer led by John.  After prayer we exited the school to start our structured games.  We started with rață rață gâscă also known as duck duck goose.  The best part of the game was when Natalie biffed it and all the kids thought it was the funniest thing.  During that time Sharon and Kristen went about sorting the pillow case dresses and Kelly and Daniel did a great job of working on the villagers teeth.  After the games the kids received sandwiches and we started our lunch and then returned to play some more.  The kids were so loveable and I know we never wanted to leave. When it came time to the leave, the men returned with the roof halfway finished and everyone was exhausted, but excited to come back for more.
