This year’s world cup has left me disappointed and dismayed, seeing Brasil leave so early. I was expecting them to win it all, but I guess they will just have to pull out all the stops for 2014, when its on home turf. In order for some cheering up, I’m pulling out Brasil memories of better times. This was down in Cascavel, southern Brasil, where we took a group to do an English Camp. One night we went to Churrascaria for dinner and they had this wierd bull out in the parking lot. I think I was dared to climb up on it (don’t know why else I would) so here are the pics:

I like fun, new categories to play around with so I’m gonna give it a try. Some foto’s will be recent flashbacks…. and some not so recent! Here’s one from my teaching days, back at ICS Rio. This was the night of our School Christmas Program, me with my 5th graders. (Who are now Juniors/Seniors!!!) Fun times 🙂
Yesterday was the big day! It went really well; we had lots of help and gave away clothes, toys, food, and of course pictures! We didn’t have as many people come as I had hoped, but the ones we had turned out wonderful! It wasn’t about numbers, but what we did with the ones we had.
Off all the people who came we had 7 different countries represented: Eritrea, The Congo, Nigeria, Sudan, Israel, Ethiopia and Turkey. There are so many AMAZING photos to choose from, and its difficult not to post them all, but I will just share a couple of my favorites:
(and I had to get a picture with this little guy and his mom!)
I am super excited about an excursion I am putting together for this Friday, 11.12.09. It’s actually a world-wide outreach happening on 12.12, but since 12.12 is Shabbat here, I need to do it one day early.
Help-Portrait is a way to give back to the community via photo’s. To make a long explanation short, photographers will be offering their services free of charge to those in need. We will be creating portraits as keepsakes for families who might not be able to afford professional pictures at all.
How am I getting involved???? I have decided to put together Help-Portrait Tel Aviv for the Sudanese/Eritrean Refugees who I work with. Most of them have NO pictures what-so-ever of themselves and their families… and this is an excellent opportunity to give them this gift for the holidays. I have been recruiting like crazy: volunteers to help out on Friday to come and give of their time and services. We will also be providing gifts for the children, cookies, coffee, tea etc. A time to let them know that we love them and value them.
How can you help???? I need your prayers on Friday!!! I have literally put this thing together in less than a week, and its starting to crunch down on me. The weather is calling for rain, and that will just complicate it even more. I want this to be a blessing to them, but also not a burden to us.
Take a look... Here is the promo video from Help-Portrait, giving a background on how this all started:

My friend, K, sent me an email yesterday with 29 Pictures of the Year from National Geographic. They were all AMAZING, of coarse, but these just really got me. How ADORABLE is this:
