My blogging blahs extended to photography this week and I have almost nothing to share for Project 365 :-( I took one, and ONLY ONE photo up until this weekend. Because yesterday was a holiday and we ended up with over 100 photos on the camera (taken by whoever happened to have the camera at the time) I'm sharing four photos from our Labor Day festivities. Most of the world celebrates International Workers' Day on May 1st. Here it's a big holiday, and that means most of the stores are closed (unless they're tourist related) and people usually get together with family and friends. [Sidenote: When I was a kid we had games at school on May Day. Do they still do that?]
Anyway, here's a photo from earlier in the week (taken on a walk, of course). I just loved how this berry-laden bush draped over the wall.
PERFECT day for the outing! More like summer than autumn with clear skies, a slight breeze and temperatures in the high 70s.
Being Latin America, even though we were there on time (10 a.m.) nothing started until noon. At which point the boys soccer tournament commenced. I don't think there were enough girls to have a volleyball game, but they had fun just hanging out and cheering the boys on. The games began with prayer.
NO photos of the boys actually playing?! Not sure who had the camera at that point, but I guess they were too excited about the game to even think about taking photos. LOL
Since the event was in Sta. Rosa -- actually only one kilometer from the house -- we took our group there for lunch and merienda (afternoon snack). At lunch the kids were horsing around and having a good time.
bocce. The kids also gave each other impromptu guitar lessons.
