It’s been super hot in Bangkok lately and as much I love the heat when it’s constantly 100 degrees it wears you down.
The same is true of the things we decide to give our time, money and energy to no matter how worthwhile.
As much as I love working with kids and families, when the emails pile up and the donations don’t seem to be coming in, fatigue sets in. I’m fortunate that it’s a holiday weekend in Thailand and to take advantage of not having Saturday school today, I’m relaxing and playing catch up on the week’s work.
It’s important to take a time a remember what’s important. Today I’m doing just that with photos of one our resent Saturday School sessions taken by volunteer photographer Kim Wied (more photos available on our In Search of Sanuk facebook page).
Being taught by the high school volunteer students of KIS International School.
Inevitably laughter erupts. Sanuk ensues.
“Let’s celebrate, learning time is over and we can play!”
But faithful volunteers make sure the learning continues in small ways, despite the change in environment.
Exchange of critical hula hoop theory between volunteers and kids.
Of course, there’s a few naturals in the crowd and many big smiles.
Be inspired to build bonds with people in need and reflect on what’s most important this weekend!
