The Children's English profes tried out a new attendance reward system during our 12-week course. We said that any student who came to 20 out of 24 classes would go on a super fun paseo at the end of the course. Well. Last week we decided it would be fun to take the kids to the movie theater for a showing of "Toy Story 3"... in Spanish, of course. (We're not mean enough to make the 6 year olds see it in English...)
So today was the day. Seven of the twelve students who earned a pass to the movies met us at the library and we trekked to the San Luis mall from there. They were dressed to the nines, and obviously the boys slicked their hair back with gel. (Excessive gel is cute when you're 8. Not so much when you're 25.) We stocked up on snacks and got to our seats. Some of them were so excited they sat on the very edge of their seats the entire time... and they were laughing hysterically through the entire movie. It was priceless... and refreshing to experience a typical trip to the movies with a group of kids.
