Lisa, with the help of many volunteers, hosted four parties (one for each session). We made sure that everyone completed a parent permission slip. Parents were assured that the children would have pool “wings” and pool “noodles”. We would have lots of supervision. They didn’t have to own a swimming suit. And if they didn’t want to go into the water, they didn’t have to. The parent response was wonderful. They were happy for their children to have this special event. The kids were great. Some had never ridden in a car before; that’s right, a bus, yes, but not a private car. Some had never been to Ajijic. And most had never been in a swimming pool. After a little trepidation, everyone was splashing and playing water polo. It was hard to get them out for the games. The competition was great when doing the sack races and balloon stomp. Winners were given nice prizes to choose from. The Expats learned that “Red Rover” is played in Mexico, but it’s name here is “Slippery Mango”. Once they understood that it was the same game, they had a great time playing it with English chanting. The hot dogs, potato chips, fruit kabobs, brownies and fancy cookies were really appreciated. Everyone had their photos taken and will receive a printed copy to help them remember how special they are to those of us who worked with them this summer.
