7:45 Meet at the McDonald’s in Otay Mesa and walk together across the border to the bus.
9:00 – 1:00 work projects

3:30 – load the buses to come home – We are usually back in the USA by late afternoon.
If you can bring games or crafts to play with the kids at lunch, it will make the time more fun and interactive.
