Hi Families!

Dear Families,

Yes we are okay. Yes we are eating enough. Yes we are wearing sunscreen and staying hydrated.

Most importantly we are having fun! We’ve had two whole Spanish classes so far and no one has gotten detention…yet.

Nuestros maestros de español son muy simpático y nuestros español son mejor. We also have been getting student led lessons. We’ve learned everything from music theory to China to human design and even the perks of being barefoot.

On Friday night we had our favorite food: pizza, or as they say in Spanish: la pizza. We all finished our pizzas so we earned our desserts which were Oreos.

Last night, we got jiggy with it and had a dance party. Despite our 8:30 bedtime, we stayed up till 9:30, please don’t tell the instructors. Our party included songs from Beyoncé, Pitbull and even some Queen. We are all quite amazing dancers.

After our late night rager, we slept in till 9:00 and ate PANCAKES!! We love pancakes because, don’t tell anyone, but it’s basically dessert for breakfast. Then we had a deep clean: sweeping, mopping, and disinfecting like there’s no tomorrow. We’ve done all our chores, so now we get to watch some TV and rest.

We will keep behaving and eating well we promise.
