House 2 Officially Opens!
We recieved 10 new children in House 2 this past Monday and they are sure cute...among other things. We have been without e-mail for a week or so, but will try to get more photos of them posted very soon!
First thing we did when the children arrived was to cut hair and take baths!
The 'old kids' were outside pushing the 'new kids' on the swings so we ran out to take photos. This is Diana, being pushed by Yasini. Her little brother Deo is a thumb-sucker.
We went for a walk the first afternoon and paired each kid up with another from House 1 to show them the ropes; this is Eric trying to teach Kevin some of our favorite songs.
All 20 playing London Bridges- or something kind of like that.
The best part of the day was right before lights out; last time a mission team came from the States Mama Kim brought along cabbage patch kids for the girls and we passed them out to help ease the pain of having to sleep in those great big beds all alone. These were VERY happy little girls.
