Valentine’s Day at Ithemba

Valentine’s Day seems to be a very important holiday in South Africa…EVERYTHING turns pink and red- the stores were decorated, the restaurants were celebrating for a full week, and all of the kids at Ithemba were so excited about the holiday…mostly because they know it means an ice cream party and day of heart shaped arts and crafts…but also because every year, they have an Ithemba pageant!  The kids get SO excited for the chance to walk down the home-made “runway” and show off their best “model walk!”  The girls walk with so much attitude and the boys walk trying to show off their muscles…mean while all of the other kids are cheering them on from the audience.  It might have been one of the cutest things I have ever seen, so I figured I would share some pictures!
