We had a brilliant craft session today. The girls (and boys) were thrilled to decorate bags and puppets. Each one wanted a photo taken with their work of art. The girls especially loved, as all girls do, sticking on jewels to their new accessory. Sometimes the kids don't have the patience to sit down and do a craft as they want to quickly move on to the next thing. They often fear on missing out. Today however they all sat down and really enjoyed not only decorating the bags and puppets but they were truly happy with their finished product
We (the team) today have been talking a lot about the futures of these kids. Especially for the girls. I think it has hit home with most of us that the future for these girls doesn't look as bright as ours. All we can do is show them that we love them, care about them and hopefully this will be a time in their lives they can look back on and remember as a really happy time.
Tonight's coolness provides welcome relief from the week of high temperatures we've had. Plans may have to change tomorrow to accommodate the rain. We shall wait and see...
