Last Day at the School and the Great Costa Rican Race

By Jackson, Benjamin, Dylan, and Gavin

Benjamin woke everyone up with a drum at 6:30 in the morning, and then Mr. Blythe did his morning ritual (this time with a mariachi band). In the morning we went to the Chilamate School and played with the kindergarteners. We whacked down a piñata with them, and they were really energetic.

We did a project where we painted a quote or saying on a metal slab. Then we hung the metal plates on a fence. Shortly after, we took a picture with the 4th graders.

Then, we played a name game with the 4th graders. We passed a football and a soccer ball around in a circle and when someone got the ball, they said their name. We also hit a piñata with the 4th graders.

We came back to the lodge and ate lunch. Then, we prepared for the adventure race. The adventure race is a challenge where you have a map, and you have to try to find your way around Costa Rica. The challenge was around our lodge. We all started the race in our teams and were on to the first station when it started to pour rain. We rushed back and waited for an hour. The delay was over, and we went back to work. We did five stations. There was dancing, rock stacking, milking a cow, an interview, and cooking. They were all amazing and delicious! We had a great time. In total Ms. Forb’s team won with the most rubber bands. Last we ended the day with our ANCHOR session. The Costa Rica race really was an adventure today.
