Update on the uniforms

All the uniforms needed, that I mentioned about in my last post, have been provided for!
Is it bad that I am still not done packing!? I have 2 large luggages for donations, one is mostly filled with soccer jerseys and the rest is for other donations.
I've been following the forecast in Puerto Plata and it's been really rainy. I hope that this will clear up by time I get there! Meanwhile in Santiago it's completely clear and sunny skies and in Santo Domingo the same thing. I'm really excited about starting the soccer program in Munoz. It was last minute, my old highschool had collected jerseys for a project in Uganda but were unable to ship them there, and instead they gave them to me for the DR. Hopefully we can set up a few teams. All i'm missing is soccer balls, so i'm going ot pick some up in the DR.
The biggest thing im focusing on this trip is to look at the education system. I won't be able to figure it all out in two weeks but hopefully i'll learn something! I'm also going to do as much exploring as I can in Puerto Plata and Santo Domingo.
I leave for the airport at 4:00 am so it's time for me to sign off. I'll try and keep this blog updated as much as I can!
