Today (Friday) was the first sunny day in a LONG time. It was the perfect time to head to the Botannic Gardens to walk off some energy. By 8:30 we were at Jacob Balla's Garden playing on the playground (which incidentally has BOTH slides closed???). We walked around looking at the different plants, ran through the maze, played in the sand, and then splashed. Then we walked through the gardens, had a picnic lunch, took the rain forest trail, and headed back to the car. They were dragging (which we LIKE)! I highly recommend this day out!
Also we got our fridge back after a MONTH of repairs-seems to be working fine AND it cost way less than what they quoted us!
Of course, I suggested a flower. (This man did some AMAZING things!) But no, she wanted a PURPLE SWORD (which later got taken away as she was attacking her brother and sister!)
The ICS puppet team--great students!!
Puppets in action!
China got a spiderman painting--sure glad it didn't stay on too long!
The other day we were invited to watch the ICS Puppet Team perform. It turns out that their show was at a party for adoptive families. China, Mitike, and Ana all got some neat gift bags, lots of food, face painting, and a balloon animal (or purple sword in Ana's case!) We love activities like this that eat up those long afternoons!
