All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth!

I lost another tooth! And guess who pulled it out? ME!! Now I have a big gap! And I had another visit from the Tanzania tooth fairy and got 1000 shillings! I went to a craft fair on Saturday and bought Louisa a lovely Christmas present! But it is a secret.

Science Fun! We made batteries. We had three jars and filled them with vinegar. And guess what, we used up the whole bottle!! We cut wire and put it in a loop and put it in the jars. We put a light bulb on the end of the wire and it worked!!! We also made a loop game with wire which buzzed if you touched the wire with the wire loop holder.

Making batteries!

Rabbits! Last Saturday we borrowed a boy rabbit. It had a week with Mousy and then a week with Louisa’s rabbit and we hope we will have baby bunnies soon!

Christmas! We have a Christmas tree! Speditio and Lucy have helped us decorate! We made paperchains and playdough ornaments.

Spedito cut the top off a tree for us! Yay!!
Art! In art we pretended we were Beatrix Potter and went in the garden to do "naturalist art." I drew lettuces and rhubarb and also chickens.

See our Swahili page to find out the Swahili word for "tooth"! (Lots of teeth is "meno.")


  1. Great work! If you fill the pot with the Christmas tree in with vinegar, would that mean you could use your light as a star at the top?

  2. Your blog was just recommended to me. It was a wonderful recommendation!

    It looks to me like you both enjoy living in Tanzania! Before you were born I lived in Cote d'Ivoire--in Western Africa. I miss it quite a bit, but I know I'm where I'm supposed to be right now.

    I look forward to reading more of your adventures in the future.
