It was so great for them to get out of the ghetto for a day, to enjoy being out in the morning sun, and to be able to run around and just be kids. They got to see a lot of really neat animals that most of them have only seen in pictures.
This past week we took the first of four groups of students to the Zoo here in Guatemala City. There are 2 schools with 2 shifts (morning and afternoon), so we’re taking one group at a time. The first to go was the morning shift at Escuelita Mandarina… and watching how excited they were made me feel like a kid again.
