A buffet conquered

As a special treat for the teen boys of Casa Shalom, we took all 15 of them to a special breakfast this morning. Using funds from the Casa Shalom Child Sponsorship Program, the boys enjoyed the breakfast buffet at Casa Santo Domingo, a 5-star hotel and restaurant in nearby Antigua. None of the boys had ever been to a buffet before and at first, they were confused by the concept of "all you can eat." They quickly got the hang of it, and quickly emptied out the omelet station, pancakes, bacon, sausage, fruit, cheese, beans and more. I don't think the servers at the restaurant had ever since anything like these hungry boys - they returned to the buffet time after time - some of them as many as 5 trips! We'd like to thank those who sponsor the teen boys for helping make possible this special event.

Yes, both of those plates belong to Alejandro.

Fresh orange juice!

The boys loved the fruit as much as the hash browns and bacon.

Some of them needed a rest after eating so much - Clemente took a short nap after his 4th plate.
