Today was a long day! The students were troopers, though. We met at school around 10:30. They took an exam so that we can mark their progress over the course of the summer. Then we played a team-building game outside. It started to rain, we almost gave up and then the sun came out so we finished. We ate lunch together in the 'comedor' and we have new cooks this year. At first, the instructors were disappointed because we liked the ones we had last year but the new ones are just at nice and the food is 10 times better!!!!!!
We had a small orientation with the students which was similar to what they heard in Bloomington. We did some other administrative things like make sure they have the names and addresses of the school, their families, our cells, even the Bloomington office on a card that they carry with them at all times. We gave them some free time to explore Oviedo and then we met back at the school at 7 for an orientation with the host families! It was great to see the host families again since we didn't get to have much time to talk to them when they picked up the students. They seem to be enchanted with your kiddos!
Robert took several photos today but I will have to post them sometime tomorrow!
I plan to post as often as I can, but sometimes the day gets away from me.
