Then after lunch, the team came inside and helped to clean and sort , and get ready for the opening. Acel got the office set up and all the supplies unpacked and on the shelves. In the multipurpose room, Emma is working on a huge painting that the kids will do.. he is painting the border on the wall, and the space will be filled with 10 large canvases... one for each child.. they will be able to paint it any way they like , that will be their space..and will have a prominent spot in the room for all to see.
Now we are back home, and in about 10 minutes we will have some of the boys here from the University for a cooking lesson.. The other night when they were here, one of the boys shared that they have to take turns cooking for their rooms, and when it is his turn, no mater what he cook it ends up looking like Kasha ( Kasha is kind of a porridge made with something that resembles barley.. ) So today we will learn to make Spaghetti with garlic bread... I will find out what kind of budget they have so that I can help them come up with a few different meal items, then when ever it is his turn to cook, he will come to our house for another lesson, then take the food back with him... It may not seem like such a big deal in North America, but for boys to learn to cook here is a real big step. Bekah will have to teach him to do the dishes...hahaha
I have to tell you what I did to these boys last weekend.. We had some of them over to thank them for walking our girls in the evenings, and also to assure them that the fact that they were walking with our girls did not mean that they were available..hahaha... so we had them over and I cooked a nice meal.. after supper, the girls were doing dishes and we brought these very nerves boys into the living room for "THE TALK" ... I began by saying " I am sure you are wondering why I have you here"... noticing how scared they were, I continued " We asked you here tonight because we are choosing Husbands for our daughters.." It was hilarious... the stuttering and stammering... " You are Joking right ?????" ... "NO" I answered.. then I decided I should let them off quick before the younger on fainted... I was pretty sure that another couple seconds he would have hit the floor...
We had a good talk, and we are thankful for their help keeping an eye on the girls safety for us..
