Day 4

The power went out again last night, so they turned the generator on. It sounded like there was a motor running outside our window! I didn't fall asleep until the power turned back on.

Our breakfast was fruit again today. They had pineapple! It was so sweet because it was fresh. We talked for a bit and then we went to the Second Mile land again. I went in with the beading ladies and learned how to roll beads! They're really easy and really fun to make. If you want to see the pictures, you should friend my mom on Facebook. She has posted all of the pictures of me on there.

After I made a handful of beads, I watched more classes and played with the kids. The two girls from yesterday weren't there today, which made me upset, because I was looking forward to playing with them. The other kids, Richard and Carelovedine(I think that is how you spell it), played with me. Amy suggested that I bring out some foam stickers and paper, so I did in hopes that I could keep the kids occupied as the moms talked. I think that the moms were more entertained with the stickers than the kids! They put them on their arms and all over the paper.

Amy brought out rubber bands to make bracelets. They were the Rainbow Loom ones. I taught the moms how to make a special kind of bracelet, and they loved it! Even the kids tried! I made a bracelet for each of the kids. Carelovedine's had a heart charm on it. I told her my name, and she seemed to like it because she would repeat my name over and over again when she saw me. She was so sweet! I hope I can spend my last day here with her and the other kids.

To end a great day, we went swimming in a pool at a hotel. We were going to go to a beach, but my mom isn't feeling good so we went to the one that had a shorter drive. It was very relaxing. I'm upset about going home tomorrow, but this has been a fun trip!

Lots of love,
