Day 7

  Today was a very rainy day in the village.  We only got to do about an hour of work at the work site due to the weather, but we finished what we could with the fence and cleaned up the area.  We got to spend some time in the classroom with students.  We played math games, read stories, and helped the teacher organize report cards.
  We met with some of the local leaders from the village and school for lunch, along with Ernesto and Aurora.  It was great to hear their different leadership stories and how they got to be where they are today.  The afternoon was spent with families, and we had a big soccer game with the community members.
  We had a group dinner with all members of the community that are hosting families, along with Aurora.  We listened to some Mayan singing and stories, and got a chance to thank everyone for participating in the program.  We are all excited to be heading to Tobacco Caye tomorrow and hope the rain holds off!
