Roberto and Sheri share the story of a very good day

tuesday- roberto

We done maths today and making masks. We had maths first. It was funny because the kids got really invloved in the activity we were doing and I thought I was saying the work was looking good but I was actually saying 'I'm fine', so I felt like a complete fool. During the lesson I got the kids to do 'wasssssup' to me and they all joined in and we had an awesome time. We went outside to make the masks. The kids got really into it and loved it. They were so happy for having us there. Then we had lunch and we were all just chatting and bantering. Then we went to our second lot of lessons. We did a bit more maths and then went to do mask making and we played rounders and it was so much fun and loads of people started watching and it got so interesting. Then we had assembly and they made me do 'head shoulders knees and toes' and I was definitely the champion but Paul cheated and said Georgie won (favouritism). It's been a really hot day, really tiring, but its more than worth it for the kids. They deserve that and a lot more. Hope to see you soon all you mzungus! Hell yeah sista!

It has been an amazing experience to celebrate my birthday in Rwanda today. It was my day for teaching lessons so Craig and Emmanuel (our translator) organised for our class to sing happy birthday to me which made me feel really emotional but I didn't want to cry in front of the kids. It's been weird not spending my birthday with my family at home but who can say they've spent their 16th birthday in Africa?! 

The kid in blue says it all!
