Fall Festival!

We were invited to the fall festival for the handicapped children of Astana.  Since we've been traveling so much lately, we hadn't seen many of them since summer.  It was fun to see them again and enjoy the festival.  You may recognize the fruit costumes from a visit to Kamka's in August.

This is one cute strawberry!

Some of the moms got to dress up as carrots and berries too

We saw this mom and her daughter last Saturday too.  We were at the same market.

Kamka's busy making sure everyone is having a good time

These girls did a cute dance to Mambo Number Five

He's a lemon with a carrot top

  1. Love you blog! Thanks for keeping us updated. I wish I could see video of those girls dancing. What and adventure.

  2. It is so fun to follow your mission. You definitely are having some wonderful experiences. Us too! May the Lord continue to bless you and your efforts. P.S. We occasionally get jealous when we see you dressed in warm clothing. Man, it's hot down here.
