General Update from the Past Couple Weeks

I haven’t done a very good job of posting over the last couple weeks. I’ve been helping Lynn with some research and much of my “internet time” has been spent on that instead of uploading pictures and posting.

Below are picture highlights from the last week or so. They cover a bunch of things, but I’ve attempted to give titles and captions that help explain what I’ve done.

Below are pictures from art club the day the students learned to draw by manipulating their hands and not the paper. They covered the page in circles, then in lines, drew a cube and then drew the same image from different perspectives.

This past Sunday we started a football (aka soccer for my American friends) club before Bible club. We had a good number of kids show up. Below are pictures of various kids playing. We had some activities with younger kids to one side while the older kids played a full game. I also joined in a boys against girls game (sorry, I don’t think we got any pictures) towards the end. Everyone thought it was so fun to see me play!
