Afternoon at the orphanage

Standard

Today was an awesome day at the orphanage. It had all the elements of great day.

We started with some coloring…

And then had some library time…

Spent some time watching the big kids study for exams…

Played on the swings and jungle gym…

Then took a break from the hot sun to drink water, spit water, and cover ourselves and friends in water…

But once Auntie Suzanne had water accidentally spit in her face we decided to head back inside to read some books…

And while we read lots of fun kids books we also looked at pictures in a science textbook for almost 20 minutes…

Writing on the board is so exhausting….

Jenny decided she was my photo assistant and carried my bag around for me….

Until she received some competition for the job…

And here was the look I got when I told him to share…

We then ended the afternoon with some chores like fetching water (kuvoma amazi) and even the smallest kiddos help out in some way…

I’d give all wealth that years have piled,


The slow result of Life’s decay,


To be once more a little child,


For one bright summer day.


~Lewis Carroll
