Today we woke up, got ready, and had breakfast. Then we went to Oceans and Society and started research for the whaling debate. After that we had lunch and then went to our Racing beach cleanup. It was really awesome doing something to support healthy oceans. It made us all feel like we were making a real difference. I (Alanna) went home after the beach to play a little bit of rugby with Kai, Jess, and Harlan which was really fun! I’m really excited for tomorrow because we get to tie dye shirts and watch the World Cup (GO CROATIA!!!)! During free time we all watched Happy Gilmore and after that some people went to play cards and the remaining people watched Moana which got really intense. We were all screaming and singing and maybe a little crying (but hey those Disney movies get pretty intense, you know?). It was awesome, and now we’re getting ready to go to bed which is great because we get to sleep in tomorrow! We’re all having a really fun time. We’re learning so many things, and having an overall blast. Hope all the parents are doing good, and that you don’t miss us too much!
