The frost heaves of Northern New England made their presence felt en route to Bellows Falls. Our initial destination was the "Our Place" soup kitchen, where the students performed a variety of duties and gained firsthand insight into this virtuous but trying endeavor.
After lunch, The Kids Helping Kids group received a gracious welcome from Thomas Fahner, Co-Executive Director of Kurn Hattin homes. Following brief introductions with the 25 members of the 8th grade graduating class, we engaged in a few games of volleyball, dodge ball, and a version of 'liars poker for kids" to break the ice. Both groups shared dinner together before engaging in a panel discussion on making the transition from grade school to high school.
Tomorrow's game plan includes a number of maintenance projects and some student to student tutorials within the Kurn Hattin reading program... and with any luck, internet access!
