The Ecuadorian government provided a pre-school teacher for us this year, Ms. Norma, and she is wonderful. She attended all of our in-staff training, and she's totally on board with what we're teaching. She is so great with the little ones! She has Pre-K 3 & Pre-K 4 in the mornings, and some of our staff will help her as well.
Jonathan went to chapel for his first time. He couldn't stop pointing and grunting, because he was so excited to be with the big kids. Every Monday we will pledge to the Ecuadorian flag as well.
I realized I haven't blogged on our newest kids! There is one sibling set of 4... Gabriela is the oldest. She's in the red shirt...only half of her face is showing. oops. Jimy is beside her in the white, and Ariel is in front of him.
If I would have known this was going to happen, I DEFINITELY would have been ready with my video camera! Megan & Dallas accompanied Edy, Ivan, & Javier with some amazing beatboxing. (Side note...I just had to look up how to spell that word...my whole life I thought it was BEEboxing.) Wow...
Nayely & Rosa are both in the Pre-K 4 class. They weren't too sure what to think of everything.
HA! This is Alejandro's famous facial expression. He maintained this look (crease your eyebrows really hard together) for the entire time at chapel.
