Blog Post 10

Since my last post, I finally called the orphanage and scheduled a time to go!  I wasn't able to visit any time in the last two weeks because it has been really busy, but I'm hoping I'll be able to go this week or next week.  Visiting hours there are really loose, so they told me it was okay if I needed to reschedule due to the really busy time of year.
My mom told me she would go with me because this is also a passion of hers.  We both love kids and we're so excited to finally go!  Since my last idea for this project wasn't really a realistic project, I'm really happy that I'm still going to be able to accomplish what I hoped to in Guatemala here in Detroit.

To be honest, I haven't made much progress with my project.  Things have been really busy with school projects and tests the past two weeks.  Spring sports are also starting up this week, and I have spent a lot of time trying to prepare for that.  Although I've been busy, I talked to my mom and she's helped me choose the orphanage.  Now, all we have to do is call and schedule a day and time (most likely next week) to go visit.  We'll probably call tonight or tomorrow night to see what days they allow visitors.  As it approaches, I'm getting more and more excited, but also nervous!
