Note: Really sorry for the delay in the blog updates; we are really struggling with signal here. So we may be a day or so behind – so we do apologise! 🙁
Hi guys! Summer and Kitty here!
Today we all woke up at 6am to the sound of Rebekah screaming our names. After dragging me (Kitty) down the steps to breakfast and a couple pieces of toast, we set off once again to Stepping Stones.
After piling and cramming 40 children,3 suitcases and a dog alongside us on a 24 seater school bus, we finally arrived back at the school. After a day of activities including: mask making, story writing, puzzle time and painting we concluded the day with, what we called, ‘messy play’. After half an hour of bubbles, silly string and cans of shaving foam, we had 106 happy children and 15 tired teenage teachers. However, every single one of us were mad at Callum for attacking us all multiple times in the face and hair with the shaving foam.
After repacking the school bus, we headed back to Butterfly where we ate a lunch consisting of rice and beans, but not after the boys had showers and washed their hair free of shaving foam while we were left still covered from head to toe. After lunch we walked to a local prison to deliver bibles to their bible study group.
So the girls made a plan for youth club to get back at them (after the boys showering) to cover them head to toe once again in shaving foam, although most of the children joined in and covered us all, chaos ensued as shaving foam wash slapped and clapped about.
After an eventful day, most of us washed our clothes , showered and swam in the lake till sunset. Preparing activities for school tomorrow, we sat down at the bar just waiting for dinner to come round the corner. We ate a plateful of spaghetti bolognese, salad, and garlic bread, and finally ended the evening with our daily ‘touchy-feely time’ and games of ping pong at the bar deck.
Now we are sat upstairs reflecting on the past few days and how we see things in perspective. Kitty wanted to conclude this with ‘peace out’ but i think it’s best if we just say that we all miss you loads and we appreciate the loving comments on the blogs.
Still waiting on those love island updates though!
Can’t wait to hear from you lot again!
Summer and Kitty x
