The Boys' Graduation

 Isaac and Evan joined their friends at 8:30 this morning to get ready for the big day

 After 10 full months of Arabic school our boys graduated today. Eli and I couldn't be more proud. We know this has prepared them for being more efficient in the language in the future but it also gave them a great opportunity to make friends and find their niche in Khartoum.

 Evan is all ready to go

 All the songs but one were in Arabic.

 The ceremony was held in a large tent. These are the friends and family members.
Sodas and many types of sweets and cakes were served.

 Isaac had the honor to carry the Sudan flag as the students entered and then sang the National Anthem

 Isaac was part of a group that did a special song and show.

 Evan with his rosy cheeks. I couldn't believe how long they lasted! We got there at 8:30 and left shortly after 2 pm!

Evan and Isaac are leaving many good friends behind. They will be missed.
