You know its a rare occasion indeed when I am celebrating with a gif. Happy 20,000 pageviews to OneForTheBooks. Thanks so much to everyone for reading my posts, wading around my jokes and deciphering my typos.
|Be good, or I'll laminate you.|
|Toys for the kids...and me :)|
|Storytime gear where there |
would normally be paperwork.
|We have to work|
for our food?
|But we still get soda, right?|
|I like that my name is in all caps but my email is all lowercase.|
|I think staff calls this structure 'the fort,' which is funny since we also have a 'cart corral.'|
|Green ant lost his antenna|
but that didn't stop red and purple ant from playing hide and seek.
Today we met a kid who left his village in the mountains for the closest city because the local school only went to grade 9. He traveled 65km and lived on the street until he could make enough money to rent a room so he could go to high school. He is taking exams in May so he can get into college after he graduates next year. He wants to be a doctor. When he went home for a visit his family tried to get him to drop out of school and tend the cattle. He wants to bring his sisters into the city so they can continue their education because it is very important for the development of his country. We met him at a small artists village where he volunteers his time to a local weaver because he can't speak english. He tutors two kids to pay for food, rent and school supplies.
