The Vai-Yem-Jee-Yayy Boyz Present : The YMCA Farewell :D

We had been thinking of planning a camp for our kids for so long.. But the end of the term proved to be too soon to do anything.. So we had to settle for an impromptu Farewell to round off a great year at the YMCA Boys Home, Thrikkakara…

And, finally, Jr. wasn’t the first to arrive and end up waiting.. Arjun and Karthik beat me to it by five minutes.. A big ‘Yayy!!’ to them.. :D

We all got there by 5, and were waiting for Eobin, the last one to come, to arrive..

And, (sigh) Arun had already embarked on the usual wierd photographer business that he’s so fond of..

Have to say though, the guy does a good job at times.. Even when me and Karthik are there to disrupt proceedings .. :)

As Orphanage Head, the only thing I feel like saying is :

    oh and Jr,you’ve managed to write two posts without making fun of anyone..major achievement!!Congrats[:P]!!
    I thought the card idea wouldn’t go down well,which is why it was pushed off till last,but I guess the kids really eanjoyed it.They were really excitedly drawing a wide range of stuff.Some of them are majorly(not a word…i know[:P]) talented.Is there some way we can promote the artists maybe?

    Err.. Paulie boy, I guess you missed the Football Conversation part.. (ten second gap)

    Anyhow, they get promoted at school as it is… But I guess getting promoted at the in-the-offing MAD Youth Festival would be a bonus… :D
