service in soweto

while in south africa we got the chance to volunteer
at an elementary school in the township of diepsloot.
it was the best morning filled with the biggest smiles,
friendliest children, and so much fun helping them with
end of year projects. it made me miss being in a classroom :)

IMG_1426the school encouraged us to take some pictures and
gave permission to share, FYI. i love these beautiful faces!
