Happy Mid-Autmn Festival!

We had a party in our baby home on Monday to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival and to thank our hard working nannies who so tenderly care for these little ones.

Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated in China with seasonal mooncakes, which are not available any other time of the year. We prepared simply, with mooncakes, fresh fruit and beverages.

Each shift of staff and volunteers gathered with their little charges for a group photo.

The toddlers had a lot of fun:

Even the little guys enjoyed the festivities:

Fall is here...

Our bigger kids have been outside enjoying the lovely weather. It's too bad fall is such a short season in north China!
