Almost forgot, yesterday I was at a boy´s home. Not too much to say about it, except that it really seemed like a clean, healthy, positive place. All the boys seemed pretty happy. I spent most of the day with a kid named Freddy, teaching him geography. Freddy´s parents come and see him, but can´t afford the take care of him and his 4 sisters. So they put him in the home.
There is also an albino kid there who had 20/100 vision. He had glasses, but would never wear them. So, Dick and Lynn took him to the optometrist and got him new prescription sunglasses. They only improved his vision to 20/50...but still! He is so happy, and it only cost $35USD.

Here are some pictures of the kids.

The one with the glasses is the one with 20/50 vision.

Don´t know why, but this kid got picked on a lot...they called him looney...he didn´t seem to mind though.
