Youth Day 2014!

Yikes!! I just checked my blog and realized I hadn't blogged in 8 days! To make it up to you, I will post quite possibly the most pictures I have ever posted at one time from Zambia! However, because that takes such effort, these pictures will not be in any kind of order, which I know you will understand...(especially if you have ever used my slow computer..) :)

It's Youth Day in Zambia today - a celebration for people ages 13-35! None of our kids are 13, but a few staffers qualify, so we decided a couple of years ago to make it into a fun holiday for all of us! Enjoy the pics from our day!

The 3 legged race winners - this picture cracks me up! Phillip thinks it is time to race again, Axer & Gertrude are freezing, and Mweene is making a totally out of character silly face!

The 3 Legged Race Winners!

Teacher Abby

More 3 legged fun!

Time for the balloon toss, where you can always count on your funny faces being caught on camera!

Axer still freezing...

Blu & Hildah were 3 legged partners and obviously she had just stepped on his toes! :)

This is never a good sign...

Get them!

Cason & Francis ready for the race!

This was the end of one of the relays...there are no words...

Francis decided it might be quicker to just carry his partner!

Haley with her awesome catch!

Debbie saying that she & Haley lost just by a nose!

These are our awesome Spring interns!

One can never trust Hildah...when will I learn?!

She looks so innocent though...

Caedmon adores Teacher Kailey!
