hey there, just noticed it's over 3 weeks since the last post, sorry about that, could blame kit on a manner of things but none would be true. well we have our 1st visitors, sarah and hannah who are hopefully having a good time, they enjoy the taxi rides on the backs of the motorbike!! could be a whole new business opportunity in the uk!!
over the last few weeks have been weeks full of new experiences from harvesting maise and groun d nuts, hard work and blisters as well. the young people here couldn't believe i have never done these things before. also as as a family we have helped collect fire wood and water!! the young people collect water every day! life for us is easy,
joel and anya say hi and they are enjoying themselves especially now as they are on holiday as our guests are here. 7.30am assemblies, anyone beat that? i was surprised i could string any words together at that time of day...maybe i didn't!

will write soon, hopefully
tried to add a photo but no joy...technology!!

Harvesting, hard work and blisters - i guess the hands will toughen up over time! But I am impressed, Farmer Brown.

Love to all ;o)

Hi, great to hear that the arrival of Hannah and Sarah marked an official holiday for Joel and Anya!
We love the photos and are looking forward to more when Hannah and Sarah return.
The mangoes seem a real bargain! Although don't encourage hannah to smuggle any in her suitcase - it could be very messy. Will ring again tomorrow. We love you na soooo appreciate what you are doing for Hannah and Sarah Thank you - you were fab in Britain and now you are being fab in uganda.
Loads of love nad tickly hugs
