Day Twenty-Six: Night Of The Kenyan Dancers

They jumped backed and forth, bumped into each other giggling and danced in circles with glow-sticks swinging from their arms and waists. My children linked up with cousins and other kids who'd joined the "Congo Line" for Kenya Night at my sister's church. This little group of children put their money together and sponsored a girl in the African country and were celebrating her life and culture to raise awareness of her situation. We were blessed to have been invited right smack in the middle of our Africa study. How perfect.
Their costumes and face paint might not have been completely authentic, but it was better than looking Canadian. Several paintings by my sister's kids hung around the room. They were amazing!
Crazy hair contest. Yes, some of them crazied their hair minutes before.
 "Napkin, Napkin" a Kenyan game similar to "Duck, Duck, Goose".
Mmm, African food!
 Following a Kenyan dancer was very cool and so much fun. What a work-out!
An unexpected Kenyan dinner, exposure to more African culture, dancing our hearts out? A priceless memory.
