Simon says touch your mouth. Whoops, it looks like not everyone is sure where the mouth is. Today, I volunteered with about 10 others, teaching English in a poor barrio high above Cali. I helped Tatiana and Sebastian teach to a full classroom of students aged 11 to 14. The kids were serious about learning English. On a Saturday morning, every desk was taken. We worked with some simple sentences, like, “I am a pilot.” Or, “I am not a pilot.” Then we learned body parts. After practicing awhile, then we played Simon Says to see who all could touch the correct body part. It was fun and I hope to go back again. The kids were great.

Yesterday, I went back to my doctor for my lab results. He said everything was super bien. Really good. I guess I worried about nothing really. My blood pressure was very good every day we tested it this week. The doctor said I’m in good shape.

  1. This is awesome. I’m a teacher and being able to educate kids like them is the most rewarding!
