Fun Outside!

** We apologize for the lack of pictures! As much as we would love to show their beautiful faces, for the privacy of the children we are no longer allowed to post pictures online.**

Several weeks ago with the help of several wonderful volunteers – the outdoor play-sets from the old baby home were finally transferred to the newer baby home!

The outdoor play-sets have always been a favorite place to play for our kids! They have brought life to the homes, and allowed the kids to be creative, and enjoy long mornings playing outside! When the babies moved homes last September, the play-sets were temporarily left behind due to the work involved in moving them.

The kids continued to enjoy them when they visited volunteers, but mostly were un-used.

In May, thanks to the hard work of Tio David, Tio Franco, Tio Tadeuo, and Tia Chelsea, (and the willing help of lots of little hands) the play-sets were dis-assembled, transported, and re-assembled!

A work in progress!

The kids now have fun/ safe places to play outside, and the babies have their own play-set inside!
The babies enjoy hiding under the slide in the play-room and the toddlers love to sneak UP the slide when they think no one is watching. :)

The girls love their new swings, and would swing all day if not for their homework and chores!

The girls also enjoy playing “house” in their new fort, and it is always interesting to see. Last week I overheard Saret, one of our youngest in kindergarten, sweetly ordering her younger sisters to eat their food and not cry. Saret can be a picky eater, and is often tired at lunch time. It is not uncommon for her to end lunch time in tears- so it was amusing to hear her advice to the other girls!

We are so thankful that the kids are able to spend time playing as KIDS! Thank you for your prayers!
