    1. these children are from an island in the Philippines. There is no electricity on the island. Every time I visit these children are building something in the sand and decorating it with flowers shells and palm leaves/seeds or laughing enthusiastically while jumping from fishing boats into the water. simplicity.

      1. I love the simplicity. I agree! I thought they were. My husband served a mission there, and I have many Filipino friends. I would love to visit there someday.
