Well, last night, a troop of British clowns came to our door wanting to perform for our kids. We talked about why they were here, in Ghana, to bring confidence, encouragement, wonder, and laughter to the children of the nations. They have performed for over 8,500 kids throughout Ghana's 10 regions. And then we chatted about us and what we do and how excited we were about them coming to perform for our kids.
Stacy was seriously almost in tears, she was so excited. She told them that they were a kiss from God on her birthday...a dream come true.
And today was magical.
Our KG's literally sat and watched them for almost 2 full hours. Without moving.
That alone was magical.
And then there was this:
A clown named Crash
And Bash controlling all 250 kiddos with one hand
And little over-the-top performances
And spinning plates
And magic paper
I loved watching the kids marvel. The belly laughs. The excitement.
And isn't this what childhood is all about? That wonder. That awe. That silliness that isn't found embarrassing, but inspiring.
Now, the question is, how do we keep the wonder?
