It's difficult to take pictures here. Many of the refugees think we will be selling our photos and making money off them, so I was stealthy about taking this video to give you all a glimpse of a shop lined road in Kakuma.

Bumpy ride buddies!

This little one really liked holding my leg while we waited for painting supplies. Today we toured some of the Kakuma Waldorf education and child resource centers and this afternoon, I will be helping with teacher training for their educators.

Not much of an update, but we found a goat in the hospital.

Leaving @iskibs in Lodwar while I head to Kakuma.

Hellene's first quilt, in progress!

Here I am teaching Hellene to quilt. She was so excited to learn a new skill and I was excited to have someone who actually wanted to talk about quilts with me!! 😂

Chillin with ma goats.

Such an amazing group of women! I'm blessed to have been able to spend time sewing with them and learning their stories!

My birthday has been pretty cool so far, even though I miss my family like crazy. Making pads at Wings of Hope today!

Googes and I showing the girlies around the Maasai Market in Nairobi. My friend @hawesit created my "flat family" so I could take the girls along with me on my trip. I can't wait for them to see all the pictures!

Fueling ourselves with coffee before we embark on our trip to Kenya! Maybe if @iskibs had taken the picture, it wouldn't have been so blurry!!
