Katie's Party

Today, my youngest student Katie turned 7! To celebrate, she had some friends over. It was a lively and happy group that played and ate here this afternoon.
They were all very eager to have their pictures taken.
"Show me, show me!"They would exclaim after each shot.
There were also quite a few dramatic poses.
Katie and my host sister Fatima talking together.
The littlest girl at the party was a bit overhwelmed.
This was a chaotic group shot organized by the girls themselves and maintained for about three seconds before they ran over to see the picture I had taken.
Fatima, who is only 4 days older than Katie. Incidentally, my name here is also "Fatima," since the girl in girl-boy twins is always named "Fatima" here.

Whenever I would turn the camera vertically, the would twist their heads as well!

Another host sister, Maryam.


  1. Thanks "Fatima" for sharing...how many names do you have now?

  2. I loved reading this! And seeing these little glimpses into your new life. Love you!

  3. Love to see the pics! We are praying for you!

  4. Loved reading your post and seeing all the pictures of those precious faces! Sounds like the children here, they love having their picture taken and love it even more to see it :)
