Thursday, August 7th

Buenos noches to the states! We tried to wake up at 7 this morning, but were not very successful. As we rolled out of bed at 7:50. For breakfast we had toast with home made marmalade, onion and cheese omlet, fruit, rice and beans and some fruit juice that had kiwi in it. Afterwards we had science with Andy where we designed our experiments with the leaf cutter ants. Lilly spent part of the morning picking ants off of the log with tweezers to later be decapitated. We later walked to the local school where we all helped Amy teach the young students English (body parts).
Today we delivered most of the shirts that we had brought to the older kids, the little children received stuffed animals, stickers and candy. We came back to the ranch for lunch. There we had a cheese, rice and heart of palm casserole, chicken and veggie stir-fry, salad, salted banana chips (the least healthy item of the trip) and fruit juice. After lunch we went horse back riding where we were giving full control of the horse. It was definitely an exciting trip! Such a gorgeous view, although Lilly almost fell off of the horse when the horse went crazy. We returned our horses and all of us students had a little free time.
Lilly, Anna and Sabrena all decapitated ants as part of their experiment. Also, as a group, we all gathered around the tables to play a couple card games and thought about some riddles. Afterwards we all joined together for dinner, we had steak, potatoes, green beans, corn, salad and fruit juice. The dessert was absolutely delicious, its called tres leche ( three milk ). Closely following dinner, we all had a quick science class with Andy explaining our ideas that we have for our leaf cutter ant projects. Now we are sitting here blogging about what our day consisted of. Off to bed for now! Hasta Manana!
- Lilly and Abby
