Friday, September 23, 2011

Friday at the school around 9am the power went out because of the construction going on on the property.  This also caused the water to quit working.  Thankfully, Fridays are always only 1/2 days.  Needless to say it was HOT and everyone was wanting water, but there was none.   

Fridays are also the days when Marina comes to clean the apartment.  Not only does she clean, but she also does laundry and cooks us a meal for lunch.  When I got home from school, my new curtain was already hanging in my room.  

I bought some fabric a couple weeks ago and finally got Dora, Marina's sister to make the curtain for me.  Now I can actually change clothes in my room. 

Yesterday the high school kids got together to play Ultimate Frisbee.  Later in  the evening they had a party at the school. 

Playing Footsie
Also playing Footsie

Footsie is a group game where everyone stands in a circle holding hands.  One person starts the game by  using one of their feet to touch the foot of the person next to them.  The first person then leaves that foot where it landed.  The second person then uses the foot that was touched to pass it on to the next person in the circle.  This goes around the circle from player to player.  When someone gets out they leave the circle and play continues.  A person gets out when: 1. They fall 2. They cannot reach the foot of the person next to them or 3. They let go of the hands of the people next to them.  The game is over when there are only 2 people left.

After Footsie, several people went inside to play board games.  These are pictures of Triominoes.  Another very fun game.
