...as it's been so long since any post or what so ever...i thought i should really try and impress anybody who is still reading our ramblings...well it all happened without any effort on my part....it was all very exciting, at the beginning of the week there was a rumour that the president was coming to Kiwoko, our local town, but more than that he was going to land his helicopter on new hope land!! as the day got nearer the excitement built and much cleaning and slashing of grass went on... he was going to land in our football field on the mian site...as thursday afternoon went on we waited and waited and waited...finally the helicopter appeared and i have to confess we were all very excited..and so we ran to the field, the helicopter circled and circled until it decided to land in our football field (field!) at our secondary school, so a mad dash started...1stly the presidents guards/army in their cars sped off, with one falling out the back of the pick up as it hit a bump, he sheepisly returned to his seat. As we arrived where the helicopter landed, the president exited it and welcomed people over... of course we ran over like excited kids....Anya and i stood near the car, now i should mention that Anya was dressed in a snow white dress? as the president walked by he spotted Anya and came over and shook her hand and then of course as i was the Dad he shook mine!! It was all very exciting! Later on we returned to watch him take off...it was very exciting!!
