Bethany's birthday comes at one of the busiest times of the year for the community at Talua (back in July). I was determined that this year, we would be able to celebrate her birthday together, and we did. But it has taken this log to post any photos of the day!
We spent some time together in the morning, just our family.
And in the afternoon, she had some friends over. Unlike Sophie, Bethany's eyes filled with tears at the prospect of inviting all the children over for a party, so we just invited her closest friends. Bethany was particularly happy to share her birthday with some of the older girls who were back from boarding school for the school holidays.
We even managed a cake this year... with dancers, of course.
And when all the food was eaten, they danced!
