Let's Go Fly a Kite

During the month of March, we hired a teacher to work with the children in Kaifeng, Henan. This teacher will work primarily with the older students living in the SWI. The students need the help with homework in order to maintain good grades.

This past weekend the teacher and students had a great time flying kites during the Qingming Festival of China, where people visit grave sites and go to the countryside to see the new green. After a day of kite flying, the group went to the market to buy sweet potatoes for their evening barbecue. The kids reported that they had a wonderful time, even though the sweet potatoes did not turn out!
