Sand and Coconuts

This past weekend, we took another beach trip with some friends from the compound. it was fun to see the kids play in the sand and jump in the waves. Although the beach is so rough, (we didn't really venture in past our ankles with our life vests on), it didn't matter to the kids. They had a ton of fun looking for sea shells. We even saw a few little sand crabs . ( Jeremy wasn't too happy about that.:)

"Ambassador Elizabeth" always makes sure to say "hi" to the village children who live at the beach. She and her friend passed out candy to the children. It was really neat because the children also go to the beach school I help with. They all have such beautiful smiles.:)

Playing with the children from the village.

The "big kids" a.k.a. "The Daddys" managed to climb on top of each other to get a few coconuts down from the coconut tree. The kids thought that was the coolest thing they had ever seen.:)
Lizzy and her buddies.:)It's funny how kids always want to play with what they don't have. Jeremy loved playing with the coconut while the little boy from the village loved the beach ball.:)
It is always fun to take the kids out to the beach. Even though they don't even know it, they are learning so much about the world. They are learning about differences, culture, families, etc. It is so nice to see my kids play with the kids from the village. Too bad the rest of the world can't get along as well as these children. Who knew you could learn so much from a place with sand and coconuts? I think we could all learn a lesson from our kids.:)
