The Littles (who now look terribly big) have been busy. Like all five year olds, life is full of adventure, exploring, new experiences and drama. Okay, maybe the drama is just my kids?
Our project director, Tafera and his family were over. These five were shrieking in laughter.
Adgo won a trip to visit the site of the new dam. When he came back, her brought a souvenir of one sugar cane each for the girls.
Out of nowhere, dry season had a four day stretch of rain. The girls didn’t mind.
Most five-year-olds have moved from nap times and most days, we skip it, but somedays, it cannot be overlooked. After a few hours I went in to wake them and found them on the same pillow.
Working on new skills, physically and socially
One conversation we frequently have is the importance of acknowledging people based on the worth they have as a human, created by God. It’s hard for our shy girls who are greeted so many times a day. They are making forward strides though. This man was out while we were hiking and took A’s hand. She just smiled and walked along.
They are still in the stage of not really being at all helpful in the kitchen but that doesn’t stop them from wanting to assist on every project.
Lately I have been trying to teach them the concept of personal space and “my bubble”. They are not catching it. The three of us, we are together, all day, everyday. Sometimes, they make me crazy but I know this time of them running to me is numbered before they are telling me about their personal space and bubbles they need and I’ll wistfully look back on the days when they were five and thought no one was as amazing as their mama.
