It was an amazing week I tell you, I loved it! I can’t believe I said I didn't want to go to school in the river.
I just got to experience the most wonderful week of my life. Who thought going to school would be, actually, fun? I made a lot of new friends and I am getting a lot of Spanish out of it.
There are three grades in my class Third, Fourth, and Fifth and I am in fifth [obviously] along with three other ten year old girls. There are five boys and five girls total in the classroom, but all of the kids in my grade are girls, which I DON’T have a problem with. I just wish I had a ten year old boy I could talk to, not like I would talk in class, but still. As for recess it is called mediana in Spanish, all the grades go out at the same time and eat a tiny snack, but I think going all day with just a snack is a little tight so I just bring a big snack. They were surprised when I knew advanced multiplication which I thought was a little weird but that happens. So at school it is good, and at 4:30 all the kids go up to school to play football FYI football is soccer and that is the main sport here. But that is just a usual day for Porter on the boat.
If you want to hear more just tell me and I will write more bbbbbbbbyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeee.
