Getting a front row seat to see some beautiful forever families united as a number of adoptions occur here, the closest to my heart being that of my dear friend Michelle (who I worked alongside with for 147 Million Orphans) and her husband Mike, who will be bringing another Uganda treasure home to Nashville from Amani! Here they are with their sweet boy...
Having too much fun on Water Wednesdays...favorite activity day of the week
Simona and Jacob slip'n'slidin...the aunties have just as much fun as the kids!
Getting to know the market, working on my bargaining skills. The vegetables and fruit here are SO cheap and delicious!
Loving on little bittys and learning how to use baby slings : )
Playing with the parachute...roadtrip down memory lane to elementary school PE every time this gets whipped out. The kids love it (see faces above).
Laughing at silly signs like this one....don't you want to go see who is up there?
Helping teach preschool to little bittys like this...teaching them how to write their letters, how to write their names, and lots of other fun things!
Taking William, the little boy who has stolen the biggest part of my heart, for a painting lesson and just getting to show him some extra love : )
Visiting my new dear friend Megan in Kampala with the other 3 volunteers I've become good friends with! Bottom row: Megan, Hallie, Rakul; Top row: Me, Simona
Spending most of the day on the Saturday when we went to Kampala at this gorgeous pool, getting a few hours of precious relaxation time and sweet friend time. So needed and refreshing.
Figuring out what to do with toddler and preschool age kiddos when it rains most days of the week. The rainy season is in full swing, and so we're having to get creative. The ever classic balloon tied to the ankle game where you try to pop your friends balloon proved both hilarious and the cause of many tears. Probably a one-time only game for this crowd..
Overall, loving on the Amani family...Mamas, Uncles and children!
So, that's some of what I've been up to! Along with loving Uganda, following my sweet Jesus, and of course missing all of you! Much love!
