Getting Mr Pig

In school , I am learning about Light and Shadows, and we had Art Day! We made silhouettes by tracing around our shadows on white paper on the wall. We traced them on black paper and cut them out.
Can you guess who is who?

The puppies are all finding new homes. We will keep one called “Livingstone.” The bunnies are getting big and are looking so cute!

Yesterday, we went to get a male pig. It was very big and it was difficult to get him in the pick-up truck. In the truck, the pig did a lot of poos and it smudged all over the back windscreen! He has now made friends with Lulu.




He's in!

Bladder balls

Last   week  we   made a ball that was a pig's bladder! It is round  and it is where wee comes out! We blew it up with a straw and  played catch. It felt yucky, slippy and slimy.

Today we did light  and  shadow.  When  something  blocks  the  light,  it  makes a  shadow.

Singing in the Rain and Broccoli for Tea

We have been having lots of fun with Hugh and Lyn and Greg. We have played Old Maid (thank you, Adelaide!) and taken Greg up Gangilonga Rock. We have had lunch at Neema Crafts and been to Magozi. They brought lots of things with them - we have kids toothpaste again now and kids shampoo and lots of other things too. I am sooo happy to have more books to read!

In Dar-es-Salaam we had the first rain we have had since April. It was sooooo nice and very exciting! Louisa went crazy dancing and swimming in puddles. We were both soaked! It hasn't rained in Iringa yet.

The dogs are getting big. And the bunnies have opened their eyes and have lots of fur now. They are cute.

We saw a purpley snake in the clay pit in Magozi. It wasn't very big, but someone bashed him on the head pretty quick.

We just got our first broccoli from our garden! It is hard to buy it here, so we wanted to grow our own. It is very tasty! We love having it!

Exciting News! Bunnies!

Great news! On Thursday, Mouse gave birth to six little bunnies! And they are all alive! So now we need six bunny names. One is called Twitch. We are really happy!
Six Tiny Bunnies!

We just got back from having a sleepover at the Galvins. We had lots of fun playing with our friends, Tianna, Abeni and Kaiya. We did lots of dressing up.

Before that we were in Magozi. For school in Magozi we have made a Roman oil lamp out of clay. It has a hole to pour oil in and a hole for a wick, but we haven't tried lighting it yet. We have also been learning about the senses and we were learning about ears and sound and made a telephone out of yogurt  pots. Our friends in Magozi liked trying it out with us. Last week we did taste and did blindfold taste tests, to see where different taste buds were on our tongue. Mum even put vinegar on our tongues. Yuck.
