FREEDOM!!!

Indonesia's Independence Day is on 17 August, which is tomorrow. We have started the celebrations from few days ago.
these are some pictures from our independence day celebration in my neighborhood. not the best shots, everybody was moving and my cam isn't good enough for that...

games for children

we have done this last Saturday


eating kerupuk is the most frustating game



Ir was frustated



but Ar broke the rules


and Ansel didn't care about it at all, just enjoyed the kerupuk


Ibit won this race


Ar was so good in this one





the night before the day


Ar Ir and Ibit helped me wrap the gifts for the children in the afternoon


we prayed for our heroes who has fought with their blood to free this country from Dutch and Japan



games for dads: they had to move 5 marbles in a plate filled with flour to a little bowl, using their mouth



games for moms: they have to put a pencil tied behind their back into a bottle




every kid got a gift






and hot soto was great for a cold night dinner


more reports next week!!

Happy Independence Day! Look like a lot of fun games! I was guessing that kerupuk was like a doughnut.....
