Seventh and Eight-graders who were not part of the camp played and babysat our three boys for the whole day. The boys enjoyed interacting with Thai kids - playing with toys and computer games, or just chatting with them.

Another English Camp, Another Opportunity
On June 29th, we were given another opportunity to get our faces and names known in the community when we helped out in an English camp at a public school about half an hour from us. Sixty kids from five different elementary schools participated in a government funded/issued English camp. All the teachers pretty much let us "go for it" for the entire day, allowing us to change whatever we wanted to in their pre-set program and schedule. How gracious, they are! They were so excited and honored to have native English speakers come and teach the children. Our co-worker, Jenni Starkey, was able to take the day off school to help us out.
