Thursday 24th February 2011..some sadness!!

9am found me on the tennis court yet again and yet again 2 hours of good fun and a bit of a workout..came home and relaxed for a while before going to Casa Hogar to pick up the girls…this is where the sadness started..I saw Paola still in her school uniform in a deep conversation with one of the Madres, she did come over and give me a hug and a peck on the cheek, but she had these huge tears in her eyes……from what I could understand she would not be allowed to come out this afternoon with me…she was being very brave about it…Paola is one tough girl and she does not like to show any sign of weakness but this was hard for her as I left with Daniela and her sister Lupita.  My knowledge of Spanish did not let me understand what had transpired just so sad that Paola could not come out.

We first went and did some chores and then went grocery shopping they love to do this…
