Student Reflections: Lauren and Abbie (March 31)

     Today was a day that wasn’t as busy as the other days, but it was still busy with new experience for all of us as a team! When we finished at our worksite, and the principal came and thanked us it really struck me that each segment of our trip is ending and for some of us, we won’t get to do this ever again or for a really long time. It really struck me how we’ve grown closer and more united as a team. It was really nice to be able to go to the pool, as a reward for how much we got done on the first work day, and finishing so quickly and working so well together to get us to the pool was really cool. Also, just having fun together at the pool, laying in the sun, and just being able to kick back, have fun and grow together as a team was really good for us. And something that’s important and meant for us on this trip.

     These past few days have been a blur filled with so much it can be difficult to recall everything that has come to pass. The farewells were sorrow-filled on both sides, tears were shed for the impact on our lives is something that will last a lifetime. The home visits were very touching, that they would allow us into their homes and willingly answer any question we threw at them. They are a beautiful people.
