Time Out

Tomorrow is Dennis' third birthday. He's the youngest of our Ilula orphans.

The Rotich boys, being goofy. These are some of the most inquisitive boys ever!

Rogers asked me to take this picture for Danette, who happens to be his sponsor.
He's being a real boy, trying to impress her by doing push-ups. :)

I was in Kipkaren with the team all day. Or, rather, I took them to Kipkaren and then let one of the staff there take them around while I had a great visit with my friends there over a cup of tea. It was a pure delight to just put our feet up for a bit and visit about everything BUT work stuff. When they left, I closed my door and read for a while and even took a little nap. It was just what I needed! Some days, more than others, I really, really miss simply hanging out with good friends. (In case you're thinking I'm just lazing around, the break lasted all of maybe 2 hours.)

After dinner this evening, I went to check on Hillary (he's much better) as well as another boy who had burned his hand. I took a few pictures in their room. We laughed really hard at some of the photos. It was fun to go and hang out with "my boys" for a bit and just be goofy.
