Today was too cool! I went to Wendi's French class just to observe and learned just a little more French! :) It was nice to see diverse students putting a sincere effort into learning.
Following lunch, we left for our "Family Trip". I was a member of Wendi's family (of course), Family 13. There are approximately 16 families, groups of "sons" and "daughters" who have "parents" (the adult LAS worker). Wendi said I would be Auntie. :)
Our family took an hour and a half coach bus ride down the mountain. I will admit, it was a scary ride, looking like we could drive right off the side of the mountain. But, we made it! (Thank you, Jesus... I find myself internally saying this so often.)
This bus is so cool! The door is in the middle! :)

This was the beginning of the chocolate candy creation. Long strips of chocolate are cut into shorter sticks as shown.
The short chocolate strips are then coated again in chocolate!
