The beach outing isn't far off now!
Well it's now only 9 days until our beach outing with the Quang Nam children we have in sponsorship programs here! We are expecting around 40 of the children for the day.
We have some Vietnamese swimming instructors, a Japanese, an Australian, and a Scottish one! We have two life guards and nine more sets of eyes at present and still 8 days to go before the event.
I am still raising funds for this day and trying to get a few more strong swimmers and sets of eyes. Everything else is close to organized including Miriam coming back from Australia with a huge container of sunscreen!
It's a beautiful beach and we are quite likely at this time of year to have lovely weather althogh rather hot. We hope it will be a day for them to remember including having lots of fun, making new friends, and having swimming lessons and a water safety talk. They should be going home with some confidence in the water and an understanding of water safety and will be taking home a photo of themselves at the beach!
