Boston, our hearts are with you.
Jordan and I realized we haven’t shared any photos with you yet from our trip to Burma. Mr. Autumn and I were there for three weeks in March. Jordan and Mr. Spring were there for a week and then went to Thailand for a week. We were in Burma to do some volunteer work in an orphanage. It was our annual volunteer vacation like the ones we took in Laos and Argentina and 10 other countries in the past decade.
As a quick recap, we worked in three orphanages and made improvements and bought supplies that they needed. For instance, the children slept on concrete floors, so we built beds and/or bought mats for them to sleep on. We painted several dormitories, replaced a water pump, created a reading center, built a regulation volleyball court, paid to have one roof replaced and others painted, paid for a fence around one of the compounds, bought computers, and a guitar, provided clothes, games, and toys, etc. The ages ranged from eight months to 18 years old, and they were so adorable.
They wear a paste on their faces as a sunscreen.
Jordan is repairing a bed (upper left), I helped paint (upper right), outside of one dorm (bottom left) inside being painted in another dorm (bottom right). They picked the paint colors.
We left plenty of time for touring.
