Up, Up and Away!
This month has been filled with fun things and new experiences. Last Sunday, we took all the children on a field trip to Arusha airport. We have several boys that are facinated by airplanes. Erick desperately wants to be a pilot. Teacher Maureen had a great idea of taking the kids to the airport to see the airplanes. A doctor friend of Teacher Maureen's donated some money for the children to do something special. So we put the two ideas together and came up with chartering a small airplane for one hour. They put the children into groups of five and each group got about 15 minutes of flying time. The kids had a blast! We got different reactions from the children, some absolutely loved it, some were scared, some a little queezy, but overall it was a memorable experience for them and so fun to share with them.
