Today, I spent the entire day with a mixed group of students from my art club and my friend's environmental club students. We worked on the environmental club's garden. I can't remember the last time I did such hard labor. (Whoa! I just had a moment of deja vu as I typed that last sentence!) We dug a path in the dirt to lay down a concrete rock pathway. My body is unbelievably sore, but well worth it. It turned out beautiful!
We still have plenty of work ahead of us, but little by little this area will become even more beautiful. I can't wait for the students to finish the 2 murals and the garden! It is so exciting to see its progress.
I am lucky to have the opportunity to work with such amazing kids. They have the biggest hearts and are not afraid to work hard. This particular group of kids have such enthusiasm for this project! What makes this experience more wonderful is to see the pride they have to beautify their school!
