My Current highlight is that on Mon we taught everyone how to make playdough, goop, finger paint, etc and instead of weird looks and/or guilt b/c we are “wasting food”, everyone happily took off with the ideas! And now we are step 3 into making piñatas with balloons!
meeting new friends, including the team from Australia that is helping!
A chance to do/ work on something, a challenge
We’re out of the house
The kids are active and involved with the local playschool (mostly our 2.5 year old)
Using my organizational skills for the greater good of common man…
Trying to organize everything takes a lot of effort! No rest!
Kids’ schedules are thrown off, eating and nap times…boo, hoo!
Oh and poor Levi has picked up this heart breaking “mmmaaammmmaaa” cry from the new unsettled little ones…
And the worst–
Being told “that’s a good idea…for YOU…but we can’t…” Obviously, this last one is the most discouraging, but it is a common attitude in Asia and did not surprise me. Even though that ugly attitude came up, by the end of the week, we were making breakthroughs in people’s thinking and beginning to see things clicks.
We have a few more days of the seminar and hopefully we can celebrate the end with a candy raining from the sky (or from our piñatas)!
Book Note: Started on Brown today!
