Ketchup #1- English Camp

Ok, so here is the first of the big June catch up posts. The first was doing English camp for some middle schoolers. The English part of the camp would be boring to all you English speakers out there, but here are some of the highlights of our time there. We had 2 weeks of it, the first was out on a huge island.
It was Isaac's first airplane flight. He did great! Take offs were easy, but I think his ears bothered him a bit on the landings. Still though...he has the makings of a good little traveler.
Since we had some native English speakers fly in from America we gave them a couple days of R&R and orientation before camp started. Justin and Daniela helped us show them a good time. We went out to a beach just a short boat ride away.
Isaac's first boat ride. He doesn't remember much.
There were so many fish!
The family!Isaac's first time in the ocean...the South China Sea! He seemed to not hate it...so we deemed it a success.
I've noticed the bigger Isaac has gotten- meaning he doesn't look like a newborn anymore- locals feel more free just to come up and pick him up. Seriously, they do it everywhere! The little girl was NOT happy that her mom was holding another baby.But he's so cute! We know why they want to pick him up...and squeeze his arms, pinch his cheeks, "sniff" his face, and the fun one- put their arms up to his and compare how fair his skin is compared to theirs.
Camp was fun with a mix of organized chaos and "the hokey pokey"... we all had fun though.
It was a fun week...not to mention we did it in paradise!
