Kenyan women take their young children with them wherever they go, as access to babysitting or daycare are pretty limited. We try to take the babies out of the house as often as possible to have them experience what it would be like to grow up as a typical Kenyan baby. We also see that it is important for each baby to get one-on-one time with an adult caregiver whenever possible.
Most weeks, this is a trip to the grocery store or even just a ride in the car, but this time it was Caleb and Hassan’s turn for an outing, and we treated them to a morning of exploring at Paradise Lost, a nearby tourist attraction with caves, a waterfall, and boat-riding. They had SO much fun!! Just look at their smiles!
