Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore. No, really; we’re in Oklahoma now. Blink and you would have missed it! Our time in Kansas was short, but sure was sweet. I tell you what, we heard a lot about how once you leave Colorado there isn’t anything but flat, flat, and more flat land. And while that is for the most part true, we also caught Kansas in the most beautiful part of the season, with high grown wheat turning from the deepest green to the true golden color that we know wheat to be in its harvest.
While we were in Kansas we got pretty darn good at the whole “zoo” thing. And a lot of places in Kansas, small town or not – have zoos.
We even got the chance to go to Boot Hill in Dodge City, KS. Dodge City carries many nicknames – one of which being the “Wicked Little City”.
While we were in Kansas we also had a surprise visit from some of our favorite people in the Childcare Worldwide family – Aunt Susan (V.P. of Admin) and Aunt Sharye (Choir Manager). What a gift it was to be able to bring our Ugandan Orphans Choir family that much closer – the kids having a chance to get to know these two Aunties a little bit better before their departure back to the Pacific Northwest.
Well, our journey goes on as we continue traveling throughout Oklahoma, enjoying HOT weather and quite a bit of wind. (Did you know that Oklahoma is known to be windy? I didn’t. Makes for very “interesting” driving. Stress free, of course!) The kids are as great as ever, and Aunt Agnes and Aunt Petwa. I am undoubtedly blessed every day to be a part of such an amazing team.
Our days continue to be filled with school, rehearsals, performances, and moving from town to town. But the chances we have had to see a bit of the places we pass through look a little something like this!
Just another glimpse into the crazy life of the 2012 Ugandan Orphans Choir. Until next time, folks!
