Youth Build 2008 Version
What do they say about Jack being a dull boy? Yes, all work and no play makes anyone dull.
So whenever we had time, we tried our best to go around the village and talk to our GK villagers. My favorite is Aling Amalia and GK, the first baby born in Gasan. He seemed to have grown faster and can even recognize me as he was responding with a smile whenever I call his name.
In the afternoon, the youth were dog tired and crashed literally in separate rooms, while Don and I started to think of retooling the landscape of our model home. Our playtime consisted of plans of teaching them volleyball and a different type of basketball - closer to basketbrawl :)
We went downtown - to Boac - to get our volleyball and basketball and some side shopping too! The trip took 45 minutes - one way, but was a pleasurable treat for everyone too to see some sort of urban life. When we arrived at 5 PM, the games started with drills on serving, stopping, setting up and tossing, and when they were ready to play, we couldn't stop them til late 8 pm.
It was one long day - of work and play. The 2 Jacks in Don and I and the 2 Jills - really were'nt dull at this point. But at the end of the night, after Jack and Jill went up the hill - both came tumbling after - too tired to care and the place was drowned again - by some sort of nasal cacophony. Ok ok, that read - the village heard a lot of snoring. Zzzzzz.
