No point crying over spilt milk!

Before I spilt the milk!
 Habari za asubuhi! This is what I say when I see people in the morning! It means "how are you this morning?" I say it to people when I go with Spedito to get the milk from the cows. We walk up the hill and in the wooden gate and see the three cows and the little calf. Every morning we get a jug of milk. On the way home sometimes we find an avocado for mum from the tree by the path. And sometimes Spedito carries me on his shoulders. It wasn’t good this morning when I dropped the milk when I got home and it spilled all over the front steps! It was a disaster and we didn’t have much milk today.

Fun in the garden!

Today I made chapattis with Mama Lucy for our dinner. I love chapattis! We don’t have a rolling pin so I have to use a jar! Today I got very, very dirty bouncing on a space hopper outside with Amisadai. We were playing mums and dads.

I also look after my tortoises. We lost one last week, but Spedito found him again. They like to eat lettuce and cucumber. I like cucumber too and I have planted lots of cucumber seeds in my garden so I can eat them too! I am growing green beans too!

Gardening with Spedito!

Visiting Villages and Canadian Thanksgiving

Last week we went to three villages. Uhambingeto, Mafinga and Kidabaga. In Uhambingeto we went to a school and saw the head teacher's office. They have big tanks to collect water. In Mafinga there is a biblia shule (Bible School). We had lunch at someone's house. The house had no carpet. The chairs and tables had pretty cloths on.

In Kidabaga we went to church. It had a very red dirt floor and didn't have windows. We sat on long thin benches. There was lots of fun dancing. We had rice and beans for lunch - there was a chicken and lots of chicks eating the food off the floor!

Kidabaga Church (can you find us?)
On Saturday, I (Amisadai) bought a kanga at the market. It is yellow and pretty. We bought a pumpkin on Saturday for our Thanksgiving Party. We made pumpkin pie and made an Angel Delight Chocolate Pudding that Mummy brought from England for a treat! Ben and Sam slept in the new bunk beds Daddy put up.
