Saturday at the Hogar

As the big girls reminded me several times today, "it's the second to last free day of vacation before school starts!" I know I've said it before, but the Bolivian school calendar runs February-November. Everyone goes back this Monday... School uniforms and materials have been bought so everyone is ready! 

So far, the kids seem excited. This year we have kids in pre-school, kindergarten, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade and seventh grade (which is the first year in secondary school here!). Five year old S. knows I teach kindergarten and we both wish she could come to school with me. She was practicing writing her name earlier and said "You have to show it to the people at your school so they can tell you I can come there for kindergarten!" I told her I'll have to work on it!

I have so many videos of the girls dancing around like the crazies we know them to be but can't get them to post... pictures will have to do for now!

 Back at the beauty shop

 "I'm a cat. Meow meow!"

Dance party any time, any where!

She begged for a picture with my glasses.

Now they've moved on to gymnastics! Because standing on the top of the couch is the safest way to practice your beam routine...

 And then it was time to build a fort!

She took their "Let's nap!" idea seriously!

 The most ridiculous smile...

...and the prettiest smile!

Smiling in time out- We see you've learned your lesson!

Can't give up that bottle!

She gets more and more bald every time I see her... Now not only is the back of her head bald, her hair on top is falling out too!
