Today we celebrated our two June birthdays. Shannon's birthday was yesterday and Kristin's birthday is tomorrow. The cooks at the cafeteria where we eat lunch (L'Aile) prepared a lovely tiramisu style cake with sparklers in them as birthday candles. Everyone sang "Joyeux Anniversaire" to the two birthday girls and then rapidly devoured the cake.
We continued with our second day of afternoon activities today. All of the stagiaires chose either Choir, Theater or the Improv group to be a part of in the afternoons. But to warm everyone up today we played a few theatrical games as a group that required the stagiaires to work together and trust each other. The first game had them pair up with one person pretending to be blind and the other person leading them around the room. The second game required the stagiaires to link arms back to back and lead each other around the room. And the final game was a modified trust fall where one stagiaire, with their eyes closed, was passed around in a circle by the others, trusting that the group would support their weight. Some of the games were more challenging than others but in the end the stagiaires worked together and enjoyed themselves.
