Meu pânico no workshop

Tomorrow is the last day of our Easter workshop with children and I am entering it with mixed feelings and a lot of expectations about our final product.
The first half of the week I noticed a lot of problems caused especially by our incapability to communicate with the children and with ourselves (as the volunteers team counted the same number of persons as the participants). Also I felt that our lack of experiences with working with children (except Esther of course) was affecting the course of the workshop.
However the second half of the week went surprisingly much better. We found our own language to communicate with the kids and we were able to organize ourselves much better in the smaller team. The children seem to enjoy the activities and the time spent with us and I have to say they are the best teachers of Portuguese one could ever have!
