Yesterday, we had a day off of school for Good Friday. I wasn't sure what to expect as usually when we have time off of school, it becomes this day of craziness for us trying to entertain the kids with other things.
Well, everyone showed up at the house around 8 am to color and write letters (to send back with Auntie Andrea to send as she leaves on Monday). But, I was still able to sleep, for the most part, until 8:00 am which is really unheard of around here!
When we finally made it out, Stacy had started the kids beading their own bracelets. After that, the kids wanted to KEEP beading and when we told them what we were doing with the bracelets...wow! The kids got right to work! We explained that we're sending the bracelets back to Aunty Christy and Sister Sydney to help us raise money for the new children's house so that we can bring in more kids from the fishing trade.
Grace and Valentina put in double time work. And I think that DK even made 3 or 4 of his own. And Mary and Mary and Dora all got busy. In the end, all of the kids made a few and we ended up with a whole bag of bracelets to be sent to the States so that we can raise money to finish this house.
I love that our kids understand what we do here and want to be a part of it. They are on the FREEDOM TEAM and I'm so proud of them!
