When we checked out the following morning there were a group of friendly looking kids playing soccer in front of the hotel. The street where they were playing is blocked off from traffic and is also shared by an elementary school. We convinced Zane and his classmates to join in the games, little did we know that they'd enjoy each other so much and play for the next 5 hours!!!!!
They played soccer, rode scooters, played tag, we're introduced to friends of friends, the girls braided each others hair, and ate iceys. They had so much fun that we had fun watching them. We were only able to make them take a break long enough to eat a quick lunch.
After about an hour Dude was singing a French song with his new friends and Zane learned new soccer moves and taught his new friends how to play basketball. Zane was concerned about communicating with his new friends, but after about 10 minutes they were communicating through hand signals, English, and French.
Finally we had to leave we promised our kids and their new friends that we will reconnect in the future. All of the kids know that we will keep that promise so our departure was a sweet one.
Hair fun with new friends
