So after talking with Steve, we decided to give the students at El Sembrador more opportunities to express themselves through the arts in the rec room. As part of this effort, we spent this weekend with a very simple craft project for Valentine's Day. Honestly, Steve was pretty skeptical that this would go over well with teenage boys, even though we know how popular the holiday is here in Honduras. And I'll admit I was starting to have my doubts as I prepared the materials. But it turned out to be such a huge success that I had to rush to prepare materials for a second day of crafts!
They may have been making hearts for their loved ones, but it's my heart that is overflowing with happiness as I look at these photos.
