This past week, I stayed in the room with them for their class. After a brief storytime, the kids get out tables and chairs and color a picture that shows their Bible verse for the week. We had a whole group of Casa de Amor kids this week, so we pulled two tables together and 2 other CDA volunteers and I stayed at their table to assist. What a disaster it was! The kids were crying, wouldn't share crayons and were just generally unhappy about being there (I don't know why because their teacher is really nice, and I know they enjoy the singing!) At one point, I just had to laugh!
At the end of the class, the teacher apologized to me for having to bring "loquitos" (basically crazy children), although I probably should've been the one apologizing to her!
We're all hoping for a better time next week!
