And Me

These kids don't get dizzy. It's impossible to spin one kid around without all the others wanting to take flight. As soon as I set Elibaraka down, here comes Bennett, Micha and Yohani pulling at my shirt calling "and me! and me!". When I start to get dizzy from all the circles, I tell them to count to 100. Most get to 50 -by which time my equilibrium has returned- and they get another spin. After a few more rounds, I have to ask them to count again. This time, before they hit double digits, they lose interest and go play elsewhere. But moments later, without fail, they return screaming "me high! me high!".

I just sat in my work pod and talked about how amazing you two are! Wish I was with you on the journey!

You have me in tears! All the photos with the kids on this last leg are amazing. The faces of those babies and to hear the laughter and "The Giving Tree" and the kids saying their ABC's - it's beautiful.
