Today was the last day to play and make art with Nadine's kids from the orphanage down the street. After yoga with Mimi, Jenni and I showed them how to draw rainbows with oil pastels and color their traced hand on a page full of circles. I've certainly learned that the best way to learn the names for colors in another language is to just jump in with a project so you will have to say them over and over again. At least that's what works for my verbally-challenged brain. I've also learned that no matter where kids are from, they just want to be acknowledged for doing the best they can, and will reward you with a genuine smile when you do.
