Through their eyes

I finally got a chance to download the kids camera's today... here are some of the photo's they took, including today's outing with the older boys from the orphanage. Jody at the monuments at the Burana tower
Ularbek shows us how he can fly

Altynai with her whole family on one of our outings in the capital city ... the kids were so excited to see their family again ....one day maybe this will be the norm !

Out for shashlik at the yurts

Hannah and Bekah at the dump when we were handing out packets of foods

Aipery at the horse games

getting popcorn at the market

Choosing the right pair of shoes

The Burana tower

Slippers in the market

Hannah giving out fritters to the gang... I love this one with Aisuluu in the background with Bekah

Running with the goat

sitting in the bleachers at the horse games

The trick is to through the goat into the middle of this mound

Notice the guy in red... he has the goat under his leg and his whip in his mouth , and is being run down by the guy in blue.
the kids making welcome home cards for David and Jayne .

Sergey poses for the kids

This is Altynai's younger brother Aziz ... we have been sponsoring a tutor for him... this week he rights an entrance exam into the top school in the country... we are so proud of him.

From the song -

If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show
The you I've come to know
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me
If I could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you
Tomorrow and today,
Beside you all the way

I know Dolly Parton sung this song, but these pictures on the blog sing a sweeter song of how you are beside the widows and orphans in Kyrgyzstan all the way, let the rains pour.

Good to see the kids (and adults) having some fun, and who doesn't like shopping? Thanks for the smile.
