This Saturday, Sarah and I took our family and some of their neighbors to the zoo! We were supposed to meet with all of the other refugees and students there, but we were running a little late and we kinda missed our stop on our way there so we had to take another bust back. Plus, we weren’t sure where everyone else was, so it became more of our own family zoo trip, but it was still a lot of fun. P had already been to the zoo 5 times before, so he knew his way around pretty well. In fact, he was the one showing us where to go and what to see! The mom on the other hand, had never been to the zoo. It was her first time and she was super excited! “Look at those monkeys!! They are HUGE!!” she would say. We didn’t get to see as much as we all wanted because everyone had to get home soon, but we saw the lions, leopards, polar bears, gorillas, and sea lions. The weather was also very beautiful on Saturday. Overall, it was just a very nice and relaxing day, and I think they really enjoyed getting out of the neighborhood even if it was for just a little bit. This is definitely not the end. We will continue visiting them throughout the summer and beyond. Having this opportunity to work with refugees has been absolutely amazing. It is one of the best experiences I have ever had, and I am really glad I took this course. I got the chance to meet a new family and many of their neighbors, and we’ve become really great friends. We are looking forward to the summer and some warm weather so we can do more fun activities outdoors! It will be lots of fun!
