People of Interest

Lots of Quechua people will find the look of our children interesting.  They especially like the look of Sarah, who is a little more blond than the others with her big, blue eyes.  They will ask to put their kids in pictures with Sarah; sometimes she says "Yes", but often she will say "No".  I leave the decision up to her.  Annie, in maybe a classic older sister move, will often sit in for Sarah in these situations so that the people asking will not be disappointed.  This is a picture of Annie sitting with a little Quechua girl that Sarah refused to be pictures with.  Look at those big cheeks on that little toddler!
