Everything is looking good for a successful two weeks

On day two, Irene and Paulette were more comfortable and once again had good sessions with their students at La Molina.  In spite of the Peru vs. Colombia soccer match, they still managed to have three students in their second session, which was quite an accomplishment as most of Lima was watching the game.

At PPA, each kindergarten class was given the assignment to plant and tend to a garden. Jim and Edith helped the students and their teachers by clearing weeds, removing stones, and turning the dirt. Carter had another good morning with the babies at Niño Jesús. The highlight of the afternoon sibling session was Jim and Carter teaching Edith and the boys how to play baseball.  Everything considered it was a pretty good game although Edith hit the ball and then proceeded to run to third base.

Team 159 is off to good start and everything is looking good for a successful two weeks.
