Even though the third grade boys did not behave as well as the second grade boys, I had a great time hanging out with the girls. They were so sweet and they always wanted piggy back rides which was sometimes a struggle.
The work at the school was sometimes a struggle, but there were cute dogs that I could pet when times got tough. My job was to move branches down a hill so the school didn’t look like it was covered in trees. I had a great time because the branch team and I sang some Hannah Montana and other Disney throwbacks.
At one point I held a branch too close to me and about 50 ants fell on me. That was pretty scary. I loved moving branches though because we were in the shade and out of the sun. Towards the end we were moving branches that looked like palm tree leaves but a lot bigger, and I saw a pretty big snake. Even though everything wasn’t perfect during work it was so great to help out and really see a difference in the way the school looked. The rest of the teams were doing trench digging, concrete pouring, and sanding, so I think I got the better end of the deal because I didn’t have to do any heavy lifting or be in the sun all day. I can’t wait to see what else this week has in store for us!
