Sugarloaf Crunch.... Or Meet Us On The Mountain

What a week end at Sugarloaf!  A marriage -- the bride was beautiful, we danced all night, the food was great.  Smiling faces and fun -- that is what it's all about!  My favorite ice cream vendor, from right here in Maine, Stone Fox Farm Creamery, presented us with pints of their delicious ice cream:  Sugarloaf Crunch.  It was the very best, what a treat.  We all wish it could have lasted longer.  What a wonderful week end at Sugarloaf!!

Snowboards and Tiaras

If you are on Twitter or live in Ontario, you may have heard of Those 2 Girls and their glittery tiara army.  I personally have a tiara, but only wear it on my birthday and other special occasions.

There are many ways to wear a tiara.  I just received these pictures from one of the glittery army -- a helmet bedazzled and bejeweled!  This could be a trend.  Ski Like A Girl, Ride Like A Girl stickers and to that you add a tiara!  That will make you stand out from the crowd.  Sounds like fun to me.

Say hello and welcome to Siena one of our very cool and very cute ski ambassadors.  Siena skis at Mt. Hood Meadows in Oregon.  She's had a minor setback in her skiing career, but you will see her out there skiing in her BAGT T, handing out stickers (with a big smile) next year. 

Her mom -- well, she's quite a skiier herself and can be found teaching skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows .  We love our ski ambassadors, and cannot wait to post pictures of  them skiing and riding.

The Cambodia Chronicles - Part 3 Katie.... Reporting.

Hey Aunt Paula!


Sorry I haven't blogged earlier. It's difficult to get onto the internet here! I have some awesome pictures and amazing stories to tell you! 
We just got back from visiting the children's school. We walked into the court yard and its quiet and peaceful. My mom peaks her head into a class room and asks the teacher if she can come in. The teacher doesn't speak English so she didn't respond but all of the sudden all the kids in the class get up and run out the door towards us. I guess it was recess cause all the kids came out of their rooms and ran up to us. The children from the orphanage came over and were holding our hands while the others just stood there staring at us. The children of Wat Opot know much more English than the others because of the other volunteers that come to the orphanage and Wayne. Wayne, the founder of Wat Opot, only speaks English so the kids are forced to practice their English to communicate with him. They love to practice their English! The other people in the villages surrounding Wat Opot don't really know how to speak English or haven't seen too many Americans so they just stare or scream "HELLO" about 10 times.Children of Wat Opot


    The other night we handed out underwear for the kids. We gave them each one pair. They all lined up from tallest to shortest and came into the office to pick out one pair. They were all so excited. Aunt Deb picked out some nemo and toy story and they just loved it. I've never seen kids more excited and appreciative about anything... especially underwear! They put them right on and I'm not sure if they've taken them off since.
     The kids are just amazing. The older kids head off to school which leaves the 4 little ones with us until around 11 when everyone comes back. Even when we aren't entertaining the children, they find games and activities to do for hours with each other. When the older kids were just coming back from school we gave some of the children shirts to try on to take some pictures with. They of course LOVED the shirts and the camera.  Some of the boys grabbed the shirts and tried even the pink ones on. They love anything new! We had to take the shirts back because every kid wanted one and we didn't have enough to go around. We plan on putting them into the girls room before we leave. This afternoon we are going to the market to pick out some matresses for the kids. We also want to pick out some desks and a wardrobe for each of the rooms! They don't know yet and I can't wait to see the look on their faces when we give them their presents!


     Each child has such great personalities. Although we can't always communicate with them because of the language barrier, their personalities show through and are always happy despite all the hardships they've been through. Each child has a heartbreaking story that Wayne typically shares with us durring the meals. The Wat Opot website further shares some stories of the children here. Although they have been through things I can't even imagine going through, they are still some of the happiest children. They get a long incredibly well (so it seems to us since we can't understand what they're saying to each other). They look out for one another. It really is like one big family here at Wat Opot. 

love,
Katie, Andrea, and Deb

ps. I attached some pictures in the following e-mail. I hope they all go through!
