Well I figured I would write a quick note before things get crazy here. We just got back from CIPI and the girls are still at school, so it is a little quiet in the house for now. I spent last night playing with the babies and singing along with Justin Beibers music video "baby" with the girls, needless to say much fun was had by all. We left for CISNA the girls detention center around 8. I was actually very nervous about going there, one because I was worried about them understanding me, and two I didnt know if the girls were going to want to do the crafts and things we had planned for them. If anyone walked into a teenage girls detention center in the States, Im pretty sure the last thing they would want to do is make friendship bracelets, but thats what we did! The girls actually liked them alot, they even showed us some of the cards and crafts they had been making which were incredible!! They promised to teach us how to make them tomorrow. After I complimented one of the girls on her project she came back later and gave it to me. It said para Daniela. recuerdo CISNA, or to Danielle remember CISNA. That really put a smile on my face. Later we went to CIPI where we made friendship bracelets again with the girls! I guess this goes to show that if one is ever bound by a language barrier, make jewlery! It's the universal language!!! We are now home for the evening and Im not quite sure what the plans are but I'll keep you posted!!!!
