A Story by Louisa

The Car That Would Not Start
By  Louisa  Monger
 Once upon a time, there   was   a  man  called   Tim. One   day     his  land  cruiser  did  not  start. He pushed and pushed and pushed but it would not start. He went and got Rachel.
“Come  and push  this   big   white  land  cruiser”  said  Tim. 
They pushed and pushed and pushed but it would not start. Rachel   went   and   got  Louisa.
“Come  and push  this   big   white  land  cruiser”  said  Rachel. 
Tim  and  Rachel  and  Louisa pushed and pushed and pushed but it would not start. Louisa went and got Amisadai.
“Come  and push  this   big   white  land  cruiser”  said Louisa. 
Tim  and  Rachel  and  Louisa  and  Amisadai  pushed   and  pushed  and  pushed but it would not start. Amisadai went and got Lulu.
“Come  and push  this   big   white  land  cruiser”  said Amisadai.
Tim  and  Rachel  and  Louisa  and   Amisadai  and Lulu pushed   and  pushed . It started!  “Hooray!   Where  shall   we  go?” said  Louisa.
(This story is very true, except for the bit about Lulu the Pig pushing)


On Monday, Daddy got really stuck. It took a long time to get him out.
There were lots more people here than in my story

It was really stuck in the mud!

Expeditions! How do you poo in the Arctic?

We have been to Matema beach. We went swimming LOADS of times in Lake Malawi. In the afternoons,the waves were so big. I was playing with Louisa, and a HUGE wave came and we were underwater! We also had lots of water fights. Daddy and I tried and tried to get Andy. Daddy got him and  Andy kept hiding behind his dear wife Angela, making excuses that if we got her we would be in hot water! But I squeezed a balloon over him and got him wet!

CAtching the waves!
Birthday at Matema
We had an expedition to a volcanic crater lake and looked for German treasure. And we had an expedition high up in the mountains and looked for gold. And an expedition to see a natural bridge made out of lava.

Can you see us?
Tonight is my birthday party because I was at Matema for my Birthday.The Galvins will come and Marta, Laura, Andy and Angela. There will be a bonfire and light-up balloons and we will roast marshmellows and hot dogs, potatos and dough boys. We will paint baloons, the ones other people did looked really funny! We have made birthday gingerbread house from Taylor and Matthew in Canada instead of a cake.


We have started learning about the poles, the Arctic and the Antarctica. Do any of you know how to poo in the Arctic? I need to plan an expedition and I need to think about these things! What do you think I might need to take with me? Here is an Arctic joke ... what vegetable was forbidden on ships of arctic explorers? (Leeks!) Did you know that when polar bears try to catch seals, they put their paws over their noses so they can't be seen?

Christmas Photos

We have had a lots of fun at Christmas! And we hope you have too! We had so much fun playing with Elia and Finley at Christmas! They are friends from England who now live in Tanzania and they came to stay with us. We had lots of fun with Andy and Angela too, and have just come back from a holiday with them. We will tell you about that soon. But here are some photos of our Christmas.

We love baking! Especially at Christmas!
