Family Foto Day

Last Sunday we got to do something we've wanted to do for a long time:
take family photos of our neighbors. Our idea was to get pictures of
the families in the neighboring villages, put them up on a bulletin
board somewhere, and memorize everybody's name. Then, for their part,
they'd all get a family photo for remembrance.

Even though I announced it two weeks earlier (or maybe because I
announced it two weeks earlier), relatively few people showed up for
the photo shoot. But those that did gave us a lot of good fun and good
pictures, some of which we wanted to share with you here. These are
the people we live among, try to serve, and are growing to love:

(In some of the pictures, one or both parents are missing. Also, it's
customary to frown instead of smiling in pictures...)

That's a quite a suit Jacob's got on! :) And I can't believe the scowl Primina has on her face. Especially when she's holding such an adorable, fat little Marco. Thanks for sharing these! :)

There seems to be some moderate divergence of opinion on the appropriate attire for such occasions.

I loved getting to see these and look forward to putting names with their faces. Can't wait to see you two. Mary
