As promised last week, here are some images of our time at Starbucks down in Fuzhou! Thanks to a large cooperation with the Fuzhou franchise management group, our children were given the opportunity to go to a local Starbucks every Tuesday and Thursday morning for the past several weeks. While there they took some classes on how to properly make and enjoy coffee, received help on their summer homework, and enjoyed many different drinks.
The baristas developed special relationships with particular children, and many of our children spoke of the specific barista they hoped would be there each trip. This coming Thursday will be the final trip to Starbucks since school starts next week; Friday for the middle schoolers and Tuesday for the elementary schoolers.
The close of summer is sad, but many of our children are excited to apply themselves to this coming semester. This year John and Steven have both graduated from elementary school to middle school, where they’ll be attending along with Emma and Hannah. We are very excited to see them thrive in their new environment!
The rest of this post is a series of pictures taken of today’s trip to Starbucks! Thanks again to that organization – if your organization is interested in working with us, we’d love to hear from you!
