At and in the water
We arrived at the resort about an hour ago. I don't know about a lot of you, but this is a new experience for me. Our wristbands get us entrance to pretty much everything. Food, drink, etc. Virtually every kid stripped down to their bathing suits within minutes. (And, yes, they are covering themselves in sun screen.) Many are playing water volleyball. Others are sunbathing.
Our rooms are not ready yet. In a bit, we'll have to drag them away from the water to give them their room assignments. I don't think a lot is planned for the remainder of the day. They seem quite content to play in this waterfront paradise.
Let me say a few words about this morning's performance.
The kids performed in K-6 school very near the church they performed in last night. The "room" they performed in felt a bit like a small airplane hangar. The kids were in bleachers, perfectly quiet in their clean school uniforms. If there are more adorable children anywhere on the planet, I'm not sure where.
Each group sang. Ms. Moss chose all of the most upbeat pieces in the kids repertoire. There was a lot of choreography. The little guys LOVED it! When our guys were finished, they sang to us. Again, it does not get any cuter.
Some of the kids on bus #3 wrote about their experiences. I'll send some of those along later tonight or tomorrow.
