At lunch we had the wonderful opportunity to eat at Stephen's house with his family. His family is very nice and it was a great experience to get to meet them.
After lunch we returned to seams where we played with the children and my family and I had to say goodbye to them because it was our final day. The children sang us a goodbye song and we took many pictures with them.
After saying goodbye we went to an Indian dance. The dancing was beautiful and very fun to watch.
After the long, fun day we came home and had a very nice sleep. All in all it was a fantastic day!

In the afternoon, this multi-talented team took on the job of painting the dormitory at the SEAM Children's Home. With teamwork and a lot of sweat we were able to paint two of the girl's rooms and clean the outside of the dorm in preparation for painting.

This tired crew managed to pull out enough energy to play with the children for a bit before returning home for some dinner and rest.
The day was capped off by an extremely interesting and informative discussion of the caste system by Stephen.
Happy with our accomplishments, a tired team went off to shower and sleep.
