Quart #water #atozchallenge #children


 

 

start with a pint

work up to a quart

neck, shoulders are strong

carrying water always work

Our friend started carrying water on his head at two. It’s part of life when you need to move water from the well to your home. Many heads gets the job done.

Our first trip to Uganda we fought a fire. The children (from 3 and up) were the water carriers. They faithfully moved jugs of up to 40 gallons to put out the fire that was engulfing their school. I can’t even carry one gallon on my head.

  1. Hi Leslie – it’s amazing to see the balance they have, which they obviously acquire from a very early age – and oh boy is water heavy … thanks for letting us know about these kids and about the fire – I hope it wasn’t terrible – cheers Hilary

  2. My father used to joke that if you lifted a baby calf every day eventually you could lift a full-grown cow. Perhaps it was not a joke. It must have been a sight to see – all those children – rising tot he task. Wow, getting teary-eyed over here
