With early morning alarms, screaming kids, and prepping for assessments, the only thing that got us through this long week was knowing we had a great weekend in Khanom ahead of us. The American crew came clad in their stars and stripes for the 4th of July weekend and participated in an international volley ball tournament at Jam Bay. While I like to quote a wise man by saying, "I'm not a mess...I'm an athlete," our athletic skills weren't up to par this time around and we suffered a brutal loss to the Jam Bay team - we were, indeed, a mess. As the dark clouds approached, we finished our game just before the heavens opened up. Then at that point there was nothing to do but swim, drink, and eat...yea, weather doesn't really change our plans. The Jam Session on Saturday featured some of our usual favorites as well as a new group talent, my very own roommate Haley (so proud!) sang with James. Unfortunately, after a whole night of charging, my camera thought it would be funny to die early that evening...so I worked with what I had for this week's video. Thanks to Angela and Nikki for some great clips and commentary!
