I don’t know how to do this in a non-needy way. I am going to list a few things we would love to have or borrow.

English classes are going well.
The first time coloring was more uneventful than the day I decided to teach painting to kids who didn’t know what a paintbrush is.
So many of you have sent craft and art supplies that our being well-used, by The Littles, our guests just passing through and our neighborhood kids.
Kids’ scissors and crayons are always great
We would like to collect items when we are in the USA for a wedding, our return to Ethiopia in early January 2015
WE GET 8 SUITCASES ON OUR RETURN JOURNEY! :)
Each class involves a story, Reference post on “What’s A Boat?!” This experience brought to my attention that a simple flannelgraph set could greatly enhance understanding. Also, any small realistic toys, vehicles, animals, household items, etc
-world map (laminated if possible)
-Small white dry erase boards
-multiple packs of dry erase crayons (we keep losing the lids for our markers!)
-Simple kids books that could enhance English teaching experience
-Very basic coloring books
-Stickers that depict real life things (animals, vehicles, etc)
I asked Yenework which sticker she wanted. She smiled and pulled off the background sheet and slapped it on her shirt. When you are three, bigger is always better.
Back to the USA
As we weren’t planning on being in the USA for a winter in quite some time, we got rid of most of our winter things. As we will be coming back now, to the USA for my brother’s wedding, we are missing some winter wardrobe pieces that I was hoping to borrow.
If anyone has these items and they are willing to lend for three weeks this winter, can you please sign up here?
Otherwise, my kids may look like this. A combo of dress up clothes, pajamas, too small of shoes and an oversized shirt.
-2 pairs of size 10 girls’ snow boots
-2 nice winter coats girls’ size 5
-2 winter coats to play in the snow, size 5
-2 pairs of snow pants, also size 5
- girls jeans, size 4 or 5
-2 car seats for age 5 kids
For Mama to borrow:
-hair straightener and blow dryer
If you are interested in either lending or sending items, please check out this link.
We do have another needs/wants list that is more care package type items, I am not going to post it as I already feel extremely needy posting this, if you are interested, let me know and I will send it to you. :)
