So today is Tuesday and the first thought that comes to my mind is we have only 1 week left on this trip and only two more days with the mountain girls. I really can’t believe how fast time has flown by!
Today was fun as I helped out with the Dental Hygiene workshop taught by Shawnie and Brynn. They did a wonderful job demonstrating how to properly brush and floss your teeth. After that we took vocab words that deal with dental hygiene such as dentist, brush, cavity, floss and others, and put them into sentences. It’s fantastic seeing the girls begin to understand and light up when it clicks. One of which is a girl named Champa who is in the lowest English level. Since the program started she has improved bunches. There isn’t words that can accurately describe witnessing it.
In the afternoon the sports and music team and I had the girls create instruments using paper plates, rice, markers and few stapes. The older Indian girls did some sweet intricate designs.
Then the last note I will jot down is how sweet it is seeing the 24-mountain girls pack into two jeeps waving goodbye as the drive back to their apartment. It’s a sight that could make anyone cry.
