Month: July 2015

The first day at KID TEA

Today we got up at a very early hour with many of the volunteers feeling a little worse for wear after trying to adjust to the jet lag and heat of Cambodia. I took them through the basics of what they need to know about Cambodia (Or at least tried to, I managed to lose…



Last day before Elephants! (meant for July 5th!)

  We slept in this morning!!!! Woohoooo! We needed it. After breakfast, we all made a trip out to West Bray Lake. It’s the largest man maid body of water in the Angkor region. It was built around the 11th century, and when you look at it on a map, it’s almost a perfect rectangle….

Soccer with the kids!

A similar day to the last two. Lots of time spent intricately thing the straw roof to the bamboo beams with pieces of wire. We got so much of it done today! It’s really coming together and looking like a house. We also built the step ladder that will be used to enter the house….



We love puppies!

We received so much puppy love today! There are a few puppies living at the school that are the sweetest. We get to cuddle them and play with them in between water breaks while we’re working. A definite added plus to working at this school! We continued adding dirt to the foundation around the house,…
