Photo Friday: the kids are all right

sistas are doin' it for themselves

For those of you keeping score, I'm still working on the final installment of my three-part series. (Check out the WHO and WHAT posts, if you've missed those, and WHY is coming, I promise!) But in light of last week's horrificness in Connecticut, it seemed a good time to showcase some of the beautiful children of Chipenhe Village.

troublemakers in training

These kids were our constant companions during our week on the Habitat build site, and part of our assignment was to interact with them. This was pretty much the easiest task we were given... they were friendly, adorable, entertaining, and just all-around fabulous kids.

Eclipson and friend

They helped out around the worksite...



Delighted in having their picture taken...

hey, that's me!


hangin' out

Of course, loved them some oktapodi...


Alvaro and oktapodi

where hasn't oktpodi been?

oktapodi is always popular with the ladies

love deez guys

They greeted us every morning and said goodbye each evening, by running after the van and frantically cheering...

welcome committee

They played with whatever materials were on hand...

umbrella fun

ingenious use of soda cans

who needs a Wii when you have this?

Enjoyed some of the supplemental entertainment we brought with us...


Kristin practices the alphabet

Mark makes drawings

art show

And generally seemed to make the most of just being kids

Chipenhe dance party

Fat Albert gets his bath


Celeste joins the party

To say they touched our hearts is the understatement of the century.

another cutie

This is just the tip of the iceberg... of course there are tons more photos of these little guys. (Warning: somebody's been having a bit too much fun with some new Lightroom presets/filters!)

For more fabulous travel snaps, check out Delicious Baby's Photo Friday.

Re: Photo Friday: the kids are all right
Adorable! I'm not sure which is cuter -- that one of the kids looking at their pictures on your camera or that adorable little baby with the rolly-polly thighs getting a bath.

Re: Photo Friday: the kids are all right
Yeah, that mini Fat Albert kid in the bucket-bath was too cute for words. :)
