We had our 3rd Annual HOPE Kabanana Swim Party at our home yesterday. The kids arrived about 11 and had lunch and swam and played.  Everyone seemed to enjoy their time. 
We had probably twice as many kids as last year since we have added more but than pretty much all but 2 or 3 kids that are currently in the program were in attendance. This is the first time we have had all the kids together as the other events and functions seems like several were gone for various reasons. 

The kids enjoyed the pool, swing, scooters, trampoline, soccerball, and this year, basketball and  the zipline. Seems like it all was a hit! 

It is now rainy season and so we were hoping it would not be raining while all were trying to swim. 
The Lord blessed and the rains held off until all the kids were out of the pool and preparing to leave and then it was a down pour for several hours!

Francis. This is progress, he actually put swim trunks on and his feet in the water. Who knows what next year will hold.

This was sweet, one of the boys is trying to help the other one swim.
