la fiesta

This past Saturday, we threw a "Welcome to Krochet Kids Peru" party for the ten ladies, their families, and other friends that helped us start the program.

We sat on makeshift tables and benches outside of our building and had lunch together.  Blake gave a short speech welcoming everyone and sharing about our excitement about the beginnings of KKP.  We also had everyone introduce themselves and explain their involvement in KKP.  

At the end there was a big cinnamon roll hug with the ladies, Blake, and visiting KKi staff.    This hug has a special meaning to KKi.  When they first started the program in Uganda a few years ago, all of the ladies and staff there also cinnamon roll hugged.  It was fun to watch the tradition carried on- especially since the ladies could not stop laughing!
