Pictures! To Bring Joy to Your Lives! And Prove I’m Not Dead!Posted: July 29, 2010
I translate for/teach/try to maintain some semblance of control (actually it’s not that bad) of the basketball part of the camp. It’s a rowdy, fun group. The spanish that the team from the U.S. picks up makes me laugh. It’s all super functional. Like, the helper in this picture quickly learned the word “casi”, or “almost” to encourage the girls as they were learning to shoot. And he learned “buena forma”, my approximation (probably wrong) of “good form” to tell the girls that they had good form, even if it didn’t go in. The team is going to go back with a rather random collection of spanish knowledge.
Here you can see the armies of the Philistines and the Israelites arrayed, with Goliath in the middle. The kids are really digging the skits. It’s fun. And Eli Ward makes a hyperactive, crazy, great David.
Here is Chloe, one of David’s sheep. The Westminster team has been super creative with the costumes, it’s great. Here’s a photo of the whole group in their costumes:
The kids got super into the Peruvian Independence Day yesterday. Everyone wore red and white. It was fun. Did you know that the Peruvian national anthem has 6 verses? It’s intense. People only usually sing the first and maybe the last.
These are two of my favoritest people. I lovelovelove the way Enrique interacts with Josue. At church and at the sports camp and wherever, they just chill out. Enrique is so great with him. Every time he talks about Josue, he shakes his head and says, “Me encanta a Josue.” (“I love him” is the translation, but you’ll understand it better how he says it if you think about him saying, “I just love that little guy.”)
I just love the faces in this photo. They are so intense and happy.
Speaking of faces I love….Genesis is a cutie, for sure.
One last face to leave you with.
Love and busyness of intense proportions,
