So while Javier picked up the man at the clinic and made copies of the skull masks to color, I did a sample one and did a few things around La Casa. Javier came back and we left to go to the street. It was so much fun! The kids loved making the masks! we borrowed a pair of little kid scissors and enlisted one young woman to cut them out! At one point there was a line of about 10 kids waiting to have their masks cut! It was sweet to see how carefully they chose the colors for their masks. I also love seeing how more moms and dads are getting involved now. It is a sweet quiet time for these kids, punctuated with lots of smiles and laughter.
I finally got to meet a young 16-year-old girl who will come to the house tomorrow. She has been afraid to leave her room, so this is a big thing. We are going to help each other with Spanish and English. We got home about 5:30 and Javier left to walk over to chaparral to see who was wandering around there. He found two Ukrainian families who were thinking they could cross. He wished them luck but gave them his phone number in case they couldn't cross tonight. So far we have not heard from them.
