Morning Pictures

This morning, I brought the camera along when I picked the kids up from school. Mornings are usually cool up here, even in the hot season, hence the long sleeves and jackets. The rainy season is still months away, so rain will be exciting if it comes. 

We live on the other side of the village, so I usually pick up the kids on the motorbike. Sometimes we stop at our friend's house on the way home. 

This friend sells lunch food in front of her house, so it's an easy spot to grab a bite to eat. 

Washing the hands before eating.

Kids with big appetites.

Proud to show off their hard work for the morning. 

The View Never Gets Old


School Uniforms

This day was a big deal. We went shopping for school uniforms in preparation for beginning at our village school in just a short time. The weight of the situation is hitting the boys right here... the new school uniforms have both collars and buttons. Tough, tough stuff. 

To boys that throw on t-shirts and shorts every day, it's a brand new day.

Two Dollars and Forty Cents

The boys weren't happy about it, but I finally dragged them to a barber shop for haircuts. For years, they've begged me to do the cutting, but I'll tell you, they had a rapid change of opinion when they realized how quickly a professional can knock out a haircut. Haha!




Eva's cut was only a little over a dollar, but not so great, so next time we'll look for another place. 

But with the good old ponytail, who can even tell? 

The Big 7

 Dad created a masterpiece for the birthday boy on his special day. "Shipwreck in Stormy Waters," we'll call it. Happy Birthday, Zach! You are the smiliest, happiest boy ever, and we praise the Lord for bringing you into our family.
