This was the most popular question I was asked over the course of a week. The kids loved my phone because it had games on it. They all gathered around and watched each other play and asked for it so much I had to start leaving it in my room. I hated to say no, but the coordinator wanted them to play amongst themselves and not be consumed with technology. Giving up my phone is hard, because I make notes to myself, check the time and most importantly, look up words I don’t know. I managed, however, by asking for help when I didn’t understand and learned new words on the fly.

|Instead of playing with my phone, let's play Twister!|
|Or I can push you around on this... thing|
The kids also loved taking photos of each other with my camera. This was great because they weren’t embarrassed to take photos of each other for me. I got some really cute ones of myself with the kids when they borrowed my camera. Here are some of the highlights.

These are just some other random shots I took around the grounds. During the day, the kids just play amongst themselves and run amuck. It's really cute to watch them play.
