New Rabbits, New School and an Old Snake

Last week, early on Tuesday morning, Maisy, Louisa's rabbit, had babies! On Monday, we got excited because she pulled out lots of her fur and made a nest, so we knew something was happening! Since they were born, we have been dying to know how many there are. We couldn't see because they are all completely covered in Maisy's fur! Yesterday, we were able to see some of them for the first time and I saw Maisy feeding them. We think there are about six or seven! The other three older bunnies are getting very cute and fat! I am selling them now!
They are so tiny! And no fur yet!

Did you know?

  • Baby rabbits are called kits.
  • Only 15% of baby rabbits make it to their 1st birthday. So, to ensure the population grows, rabbits have more babies.
  • Rabbits can see everywhere around, even behind, except for a tiny blind spot on their nose. This protects them from predators.
  • A group of rabbits is called a herd.
  • Though very quiet, rabbits communicate vocally a lot.
First day of Secondary School
I have now started Secondary School at Isamilo International School. I am able to wear trousers at last! I am really enjoying it, except for all the homework! Sometimes we get four pieces of homework in one day with some of it due the next day. I have also started the Swim Club which I am enjoying!

A few days ago, we started training our dogs. We are starting with "SIT, COME and STAY" and then will try training them to bark when there are people at the gate. Mum made peanut butter dog treats to reward them. I don't think it's going so well yet! But give it some time!

We found a snake in the garden the other day! We were playing bows and arrows and I didn't see it under the grass and stepped on the end of it. Joseph was there and shouted! He used my bow to kill it for us!

  1. So much excitement for early in September. Great to hear and see how you are all doing. We are trying to train our dog, Poppy, but I think we are several years too late for it :). Love and prayers.

  2. so how are the baby rabbits? how are you going to look after them all? School will be fun in your new year classes, keep learning, and have fun with your friends. No copying other peoples work ;) . TASTE is going great this term, we had waffles and worship last week, with around 20 youth there. Blessings to you both.
