Some Pictures Of A Few Really Cute Kids

Fridays mean a visit to Discover to Recover. Today was only different because it would be Chris' last visit for this trip...We packed up, with some biscuits and candies (Chris' goodbye gifts) and headed out to Kibomet. We arrived to an almost empty centre and were told to wait while the teacher went to get the kids from around the corner. As she ran, we watched the Independence Day celebrations on TV. She came back to tell us that she had misunderstood and we were supposed to go to the party down the street.

So, we walked to the Sawa's house...
We arrived to find the centre kids eating popcorn...this kid was eating by the newborn calf...evidently, no big deal...

It's tough to smile while concentrating on not dropping the basketball...

Seriously cute
Francis and Meshack...
Churchill...After this picture, he went to sit with Francis, next to me...and we played the "You are..." game back and forth. (Example: you are chapati, you are crazy, you are a cow, etc). Well, today, I made a huge mistake. I meant to say "punda malia" (I'm making up the spelling, but it's pronounced mah-lee-uh), which means striped donkey or zebra. I, instead, say "punda malya" (again, the spelling is mine, but it's pronounced muh-lai-uh), which means the b word. So, I called this little boy a donkey b***h. Lovely. Both Francis and Churchill laughed a bit and Francis corrected me...I couldn't help but laugh in embarrassment...
Derrick and Benja
I love these photos of Benja...
He's taken to nodding when I say "nakupenda" (I love you). My hope is that nod means, "I know" or "I love you, too"...but I'm happy even if it means "that's cool."

Funny...By the way, Punda malia means Zebra. Punda by itself is donkey!
