The last Mundo Lindo class....
Good news though, a large non-profit in Escondido, wants to hire me to continue Mundo Lindo at the same location! If all goes well, and they get some donations earmarked for Mundo Lindo, we could start up again in the fall. Cross your fingers!

She is 4 years old. Her older sister asked me if she could stay for class today. I said, no, I didn't think it was a good idea, she's so young. Her sister replied, well, my mom left already. Hmm, guess she's staying for class! She ended up being the BEST little kite flyer!! Running, grinning and flying her kite high above her.
Kite flying was chaotic but totally fun! The kids ran and ran till they collasped in exhaustion and giggles.
Thank You Lizzie! Lizzie has been my assistant since last fall--it's been great working and playing with you!! thanks sooo much.

Victor, Executive Director of the Picerne Foundation (that so generously funds Mundo Lindo) just happened to drop by on Tuesday. Thank goodness! We we making sailboats (from kits I'd bought for $1 each) and needed some help with our clove hitches. That's Lizzie, trying to learn too.
I got a pic of the kids with their boats before they sailed them. It was rough sailing in the fountain!

Xiadani with her 'signature' vampire hamburger in shrinky dink, ready to go in the oven. She made a necklace for herself and it was really cute.
