Day 3: We got to sleep in till 8:00 this morning and, after a leisurely breakfast, boarded the bus and headed to Jumbo (the DR version of Target) to pick up some items to bring to the Remar Orphanage about 45 minutes away. All the children and young adults were in school when we arrived. We had time to check out progress on the expansion of the sports field where a crew was working. We toured the houses of the orphanage to assess some of the pressing needs such as major repairs to the kitchen for the boys' house. After the students returned, had lunch and changed out of their uniforms into play clothes, a lively kickball game ensued on the existing field. We finished the day having dinner with the 40 children and young adults who live at Remar. We brought in everyone's favorite- Provocon Chicken.
