Camp Estrella

                                                                           Camp Estrella

Must post a few pictures of day 1 of Camp Estrella.  If you want to know more about the camp, go HERE.  Today we met for the first time–30 kids from San Juan Cosala.  Four Anglo counselors and 4 wonderful Mexican counselors.  The activities include reading, art, music, dance and two meals. Today they received their  T-shirts, knapsacks and school supplies.

We opened with a song that compared the names of animals in Spanish and English sung to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell”

Just as we sang, “A pajaro’s a bird that goes, “Tweet  tweet tweet!” These little charmers came in on cue–VERY LOUD!!  Then stuck around to watch our activities.

Okay, so that’s my excuse for not answering the prompts for the next 5 days as well!  Right?

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
