October 1 is El Día del Niño (Children's Day) in Guatemala, and Pop Wuj celebrated both in Llanos de Pinal with the nutrition program and at our Family Support Center.
|Family Support Center staff put up lovely decorations for the occasion.|
|Coordinator Amy Scheuren announces that we'll be watching a película...|
|...The Lego Movie!|
|Family Support Center staff also prepared dozens of "elotes locos" for a mid-movie treat.|
|Carmelina and Anjelica add mayonnaise, ketchup, and salt to the elotes.|
|Jonathan enjoys his elote loco (if not the inevitable corn stuck in his teeth)!|
|Thanks to Spanish student Natasha for the brilliant idea to put the speaker in a bowl to amplify the volume!|
|Now able to hear the movie, the kids kicked back to watch the rest and chow down.|
We hope you showed a little extra love to the children in your life this Día del Niño, elotes locos or no. ¡Que tengas un buen fin de semana!
