Today was our last day in Kayenta. After two weeks of working with the students, it was the last day of summer school and a field day. During the day half of the kids watched a movie inside while the other half played games outside, and at lunch the two groups switched. My group’s favorite game was probably the clothes race, in which two teams had a relay race, but each teammate would have to put on oversized clothes before running.
The end of the school day was emotional for all of us. Each of my students gave me a handwritten note thanking me for working with them, and my teacher gave me a traditional Navajo necklace. After all the pictures were taken and the goodbyes were said we helped our students onto their buses and waved goodbye.
After two long weeks our service part of the trip was over. I had such a great time helping these children and I’ll miss them all so much.
