In which we take a creative pause

When we visited the far-off orphanage this time, the counselor was waiting for us with a drawing assignment. Their group's entry for a poster contest was due, and they hadn't started yet. It reminded me of a time at camp when our team showed up with all our equipment and asked what we could do to help, and the answer was the a poster for the contest. Why not?

So we helped with the poster. I don't know that we draw any better than the kids, but at least we could boost motivation a little by getting into it.

    The boys are what, 8-9-10 y.o. They look unhappy and hostile. I think drawing a rainbow was not a good idea with the boys. They are boys after all. I am almost positive it wasn't their idea.

  2. There were girls working on the project but they had gone elsewhere when the picture was taken. I don't feel the boys were hostile at all as they willingly worked on the project.
