laundry day, fufu, etc.
We have officially been back at The Yellow House for a week today! Teddy and I have had so much fun with the girls and are continually amazed by them. They wake up at 5:30 every morning (sans alarm or an adult telling them to, I might add), sweep and clean the house, prepare and clean up breakfast, bathe + get dressed, and then leave early so they can help sweep their classrooms before the school day begins indiacialis.com! They are hungry and eager for everything: food, knowledge, love, etc., and are so JOYFUL in all they do.
We were curious how Saturday + Sunday would go, since they were home all day. I wondered if they might get bored, but they were busy all morning washing/cleaning. Sunday they returned home from church around 1:15 and spent the better part of the afternoon making fufu and palm-nut soup for dinner.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday! Here are some pictures...
