Funny Face

Well, well, well, someone got sick and took leave from school and ended up at my house. I think he got a little bored and found some entertainment. I found the aftermath when I plugged my memory card into my computer. So, as payback, I am sharing it with you.

Ian and Dan are Turkana, and spent most of their lives living in a native African Tribe. Both have been staying with me the last month while their parents have been away. Their parents are returning this week, and my house will be empty without them. Having boys running around the house has been the joy of my month!

Boy Stays Home From School

Ian took a day off from school because he was sick. I guess he got a little board and decided to figure out my camera.

      We should sell them as post cards shouldn’t we! I’ll mention that to Ian. I’m sure he will die. Dan–his little brother–will think it’s hilarious.

      I know it! Ian was so embarrassed that I put those photos up because he knew my dad would see them. lol. Lesson learned–don’t use cameras without permission.

    Funny – I have a similar set of pictures of one of my grandsons. Gadgeteer is right; kids are the same all over the world! Funny, funny, funny!

    • elizabeth says:

      Yes, I know. They may be Turkana, but they are still definitively teenage boys. They have dance competitions every night at my house. lol.

    Thank you so much for posting these!! Ian deserves every picture…
    I miss his big smile so much! These are incredibly fun to look at and they just bring back so many wonderful memories. Your house is going to be so quiet now that Bud and Kim are back!
