Pigs! by Amisadai

On sataday I went to swap my cocks for hens.
When we got there we saw a pig. Gues what? we saw piglets been born!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw the mummy pigs bottom get big and then legs popped out. Something yellow was all stuck to the piglets and brown bits too. They were very cute about the size of my two hands. There were nine piglets. They tried to get some milk, but sometimes they couldn't find it. One piglet fell out of the stall when he popped out, so the man had to push him back in. He was squealing. One got stuck under the mummy and squealed very loudly. also I
saw a new   puppy and lots&lots of chicks!!!

Piglets try to get the milk

This this little piggy went the wrong way!

On Saturday we also got wood to fix our fence. We got it at the Kihesa market.

I love going up on the roof!

On Sunday, we had our first Advent Sunday. We made a wreeth and lit the first candle.

    Wow, Amisadai, that was an amazing experience! I have never seen pigs being born! Your Christmas wreath looks very good too. Lots of love to Louisa too. (Sue is not too far from you in Africa at the moment as she is visiting Sudan.)

  4. Hi Girls

    It is great that Mummy now has a bike as it means that all the family can go for rides. What about taking some of your chickens or tortoises on the back?
    When is Daddy going to get you a pet goat?
    Lots of love, Grandad & Grandma
