There are pros and cons to handing over your camera to a young teen for the afternoon. They get awesome shots and the other children are more prone to act goofy in front of the camera. Many times when I try to snap a photo of the kids they quickly turn their heads. When one of their peers has the camera, they make goofy faces and dance around and even jump off things during their photo shoots. but then sometimes.... a young boy of 13 approaches you with your camera and confesses that he accidentally erased all the photos from your SD card... I was upset at first, but then told him that we will just have to take many more photos in the days to come to make up for it.
So, here's what's been going on (before so many photos were deleted) at Asha Mission for the past few days.
It's so great to be back at Asha Mission. Things can get crazy every now and then with nearly 40 little pairs of feet running around, but there's no place I'd rather be.
