Saturday, July 28th, Day 35

Quote of the Day: “First tell yourself what you want to be; and then do what you need to do.” Epictetus

Today we woke up at 6:15 as always, but today is different because we only 5 more days! YES! We had waffles with coffee and apples juice. They were nice and toasted and golden brown too. We had a normal Sedgwick day starting off with gram and then English with Jen. After that we had 10 minutes of our individual books and then science. We learned that we were teaching kids from the Boys & Girls Club. I guess me and Kenia are going to have to put them in their place. LOL. After science we had free time. Some of us chilled and looked at the pictures then me and Tracey decided to learn some origami. We learned how to make a box. While we did that Kenia and Engels were making Morisqueta for us. When we had the Morisqueta, everyone was a bit nervous, but it turned out to be good. After that we had a special ceremony, which I like to call “The Circle of New Birth.” I don’t know it just sounds right because we all have changed during these 36 days. We love and trust each other. And even after the 40 days are over we will still be there for each other. WE are born again, seeing the world in a new way, with a new sight. We will live with these experiences and we will live with the love that surrounds us from everyone. We will all go forward together as a family.
