Wednesday we traveled back up to the translation office where we camped out the rest of the week. The other workers had opened up the booth at 11am Wed. morning. I provided support from the office during the day and most evenings when Cal I arrived I went in to help at the booth.
Camping at the office had it’s challenges. Mostly the “no, you may not touch” variety. (Why oh why are paper clips and staplers so much more interesting than toys?!?) But the boys responded well and it got easier. Kinsley even participated! One day when I was moving things he found a vacuum “my size!” He did quite a bit!!! Of course Rio had to try too!
Friday my mom and my niece came to see the fair. Our friend Juanita came with her to play with the boys so I could work a little extra. We also took the kids to the cultural activities. “Shawi” is a raccoon who speaks Choctaw. (Shawi is Choctaw for raccoon.)
Here’s my favorite fair picture. Choctaw cultural activity for kids. Traditional rabbit hunting with a rabbit stick. The kids get to throw a real rabbit stick at felt rabbits. Our friend Jason ran the activity. Rio’s turn!
