 Saltando con los más pequeños!

Hola! I'm here to update you a bit on the past few days since I've been in El Valle, Panama. I wish I could post all of my photos and tell you everything right now but a.) Many photos are on my camera and I'm unable to post until I get to my laptop, b.) I don't want to give it all away at once! I've really kept myself busy - in the best ways possible! But don't worry, I will elaborate on a few stories that you may have read here or on my Facebook thus far. 

 Playing with a child who was too small for the inflatable castle. We still had fun!

I began to tell you about my experience with the children at the orphanage... Wow... Knowing some of the situations that these niños pequeños (little children) have been through... And then seeing the pure joy on their faces to spend time with us, playing, jumping, laughing, and quite frankly, drilling me on my conversational Spanish... Was just the best experience I've had here.. And I've done some pretty cool stuff since that day. I wish I could have spent more than just the one afternoon with them, but I have a feeling that I will find a way to do something similar again...somewhere.. :) I even taught a few of the chicas a bit of yoga!
