A Day Care Outing



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I got this photo of a day care outing in Beijing during the summer of 1990. The children have spotted some foreigners getting off a bus, and I think they were as interested in us as we were in them.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

A very sweet photo. The picture has a quality to be scanned. The analog pictures of my blog are almost all slides and my scanner I went fatal. Then I decided to photograph projected on the wall.

Oh yes. Innocence.
Beautiful children.I wish we could raise children innocent like that.
I remember when we went . The people wanted to touch my sons blonde hair and my husbands beard. lol
But that was before. Today the people must be used to it.

Great picture George! Reminded me of the thousands of children who will have little or no Christmas this year - and of a few hundred I've met that will have a Christmas because the Church has provided orphanages to care for them the entire year. God Bless the children with great joy...and bless you for what you have done for them in Christ's service.

What an incredible photo George! Adorable expressions on their faces. Blessings to you and Betsy this weekend. Stay warm and enjoy your beautiful Christmas decorations and maybe a cup of hot tea!

How interesting George. And what found you in The People Republic? A trip there is definitely on my (too long) "bucket list." I like to get to know some people and not just the touristy spots though. Maybe a day care! :)
