Today I got together for a picnic with several local families who have adopted from Ethiopia, or who – like me – are in the process of adopting.
I have to say, it is really nice to be a crowd where no one thinks it’s odd that I openly stare at their children with covetousness. They understand.
One of my favorite scenes was this one. A bunch of the kids lined up very politely to watch a couple of people launch their small sailboat. They seemed pretty fascinated by the whole thing.
It was a really nice sunny day, but a bit breezy The wind didn’t keep the kids from plunging in to the very cold Bay with abandon, however:
And, will you LOOK at these gorgeous girls – they are stunning. Even when they are discussing the best way to get a bunch of rocks into your mouth without your parents knowing about it…
The photo below will take you to a web album with all the pix.
