Pox Update and Photos

I'm very pleased to say the chicken pox outbreak appears to have crested and is rapidly descending. Just six children were home from school today, but all were smiling and awake so it seems safe to say they're feeling better.

I have a little more time and better connection this afternoon, so here are some photos from the house. Many more to follow...

Pratima and Maya after school.

Chija. The most polite little girl... the other day she was talking to Jen and another child interrupted and she said, "Excuse me, but I was talking to Aunty."

This is Bibek, one of the newer children and also tracked down by the chicken pox. The didis have had a hard time keeping him in the sick room.

Sandeep before school. Missing his tie today because it was too dirty to wear. Sandeep, while a good student, apparently is forgetful, frequently losing things. This morning I saw Sarita putting Sandeep's pencils into his crayon box for school and saying, "Now you'll be able to find your pencils."

Rina and the twins head to the bus stop.

The littlest ones gather round the homework table.

Manju

Ritika getting a dose of calamine lotion. She definitely had the worst case.

Saran hanging clothes on the line and Ganga helping out, sort of.

Me and the prime minister. Still rascally, but definitely growing. One day he brings me my shoes to play soccer. The next day I see him trying to catch water drops in his mouth that are falling from a second story drain pipe.

Sarita, who skipped a grade from class 2 to class 4. Whiz kid!

Jen and the didis on photo day. Five women but one mommy. They keep the house running like you wouldn't believe.

The Three Musketeers... Amrit, Babit and Dhiraj. They got these soccer kits a couple years ago and they looked like house dresses. They're filled out pretty nicely now.

Chija helps Dipa button up after showers.

Dipika and Pratima would like you to support Sam's House.

Like bears in hibernation... just fueling up for another round of non-stop frivolity.

Dipika ready for school. She's rocking the long sleeve shirt under a halter dress. She is one of the most user-friendly children you'll ever meet, likely a result of being constantly passed around by her brothers and sisters.
