Highlights from Africa

On August 10th, 2010 Team Africa...a.k.a. Jill, Kate, Todd & Meghan flew to South Africa to hang out with the amazing kids at the House of Hope. We had a fabulous time and wanted to share some highlights with you :)

Playing cards prior to boarding the 15 hour flight. Plus, Kate bought a new camera in the airport and was testing it out.

In the airport after landing, Todd met....drum roll....MISS INDIA GLOBE 2010!!! Who's excited?

Play time on the lawn out in front of the Houses.

Todd giving a little photo lesson.

Craft time with fun foam letters.

We did a painting craft out on the lawn...it was fun...some of the kids even used the paint to paint their faces. Haha.

Noted: Don't turn your back on kids with paint :)

Before we left, people donated clothes, shoes, etc. We divided them into plastic bags & gave one to each kid.

Team Africa!

Laundry drying.

More craft fun--we printed out pics and they decorated their own frames!

We made one to leave with them!

Coloring time.

One of the kids taking Todd's camera around taking some sweet shots.

Project OFB continues. We taught them how to make them and read them some of your letters.

More coloring.

Special delivery on some hand made hats!

The kids were so happy!

On our way to the airport we stopped and visited a kiddo that we met last time that is now at a different home. We got him some little shoes that light up! Woohoo!

We spent the last day of the trip in Kruger Park and saw some animals...but we'll share those pics in the near future. Thanks for all of your love and support for the kids.

Much love from super jet lagged jillandkate :)

Ps...our SOT17th is still coming...but Jill lost her voice on the trip so we are on hold until she has it back!
