From Ben

Today was our first day of school at Escuela Modelo. We started the day of with a ceremony, welcoming the TIS students to Mérida. We listened to the Mexican, Yucatecan, and the school’s anthems. We also listened to the honor to the Mexican flag. Later, the TIS students and their host siblings walked to the front, and Mrs. Trini gave a speech about welcoming others to their home.

3/10/14 Today was the second day of school at Escuela Modelo. We have P.E. today after recess, then we have English (coming from the U.S., we are a lot better at English than the other students). It`s supposed to be really hot today, but I know it will still be fun!!
