First few days in Kenya

I'm finally getting around to posting these, so here you go!

Most of the children did not own a pair of shoes, so they would walk around barefoot all the time.


This is how they would start off a performance. "Class 22B performing a poem entitled 'Milk'. Stay tuned."


I loved the trees in Kenya. This was at one of the schools that we spent a lot of time at. The "older boys" would try to act cool and sit in the shade under the trees while we played with the younger kids. We would have to force them to play with us, even though we knew they wanted to play the whole time.


Such beautiful children! They loved having their picture taken and have you show it to them on the screen. Some of them have never seen a picture of themselves.




The kids loved to touch your hair and skin.


The kids LOVED to play games with us. Most of the time they would sing a cute little song ("One two, make a circle, three four, a BIG circle!") in order to get into a circle so that we could play Ring Around the Rosie, or Duck Duck Goose, or the Hokey Pokey.


And, last but not least, the video that will forever bring a smile to my face and joy to my life.
