we invited the kelly’s and the jensen’s and of course the price’s to our house for a picnic lunch and to visit, and then to head down together to play with the village kids and do crafts. we had so much fun getting to know each other, and it was awesome of everyone to hike up to our house:)
in the village, we did loom bracelets with the kids, and they taught us how to do them on our fingers. then we tried charades with them, but they didn’t care for it too much, especially since they seem pretty shy in front of other people. the older boys started a soccer game, and that got everyone going-crazy and fun. we probably had around village 30 kids-as they would hear the playing going on and more would come join us. it was a lot of fun! there was 24 of us with our four families, and with all the village kids, it was a fun afternoon.
we walked the kellys and the jensens to the dock to wait for the boat, and saw them off. the prices had headed over to the village school and was playing with a lot of the kids in the field. we joined them for awhile, and then luciano told us the hot tub was ready he had cleaned and filled and heated with wood, so we headed home. we sat with our feet in the hot water for a bit, the kids swam for a bit, and luciano and the girls ran around the garden and the patios for an hour or two playing and laughing and finding fruit in the massive garden throughout the mountain.
we headed off to bed, it was a great day.
