Beautiful Gifts

This is a busy time of year. I have a lot to share about what’s been going on recently (including our spring break travels to Croatia!), but haven’t had time to write about it all yet.

Last week our soccer teams participated in their big tournament. A team from one of our sister schools flew in from another country to participate.

Several of the teachers hosted the boys. We weren’t really sure what to expect, but these young men were some of the most courteous and appreciative guests we’ve ever had. They were so kind to have even brought gifts as thanks for us hosting them. These bowls were handmade and the scarf is so soft:

I love the raw details of these pieces. They look and feel truly artisan:

The team showed camaraderie and they were super supportive of our school during the tournament. They cheered louder than our student/parent/teacher section!

It was the first time most of the boys had traveled out of their home country and it was so cool to see Turkey through their eyes. We took a small group to Kizilay one evening and went with the entire team and some teachers to Ulus. They were so happy to be here and experience everything.

Even though it was a busy weekend, I am thankful both of our schools had such a unique opportunity!
