Swimming and Sunday School

On Sunday we went to the church in Kayenze. It had rained and the road was full of massive puddles! It was like going through lakes! Often when we get there, Daddy needs the toilet. I understand this because it is a long way from our house. I usually go too! We go to the outhouse of someone we know. When we get there, we are often early, so we arrive during the Sunday school (this is a class for adults but kids can sit in too). I try to listen but it is hard because I can't understand all the Kiswahili. I can get the first bit, but I get lost. I really love going to this church because I can sit on a chair that is my size, next to the children.

After the adult Sunday school, the kids all went outside. It was Amisadai and I with Annif, Enoch and Sophie  - the little kids wandered off! We read a Bible passage about Tunda la Roho (the fruits of the spirit); Annif would read a few words and we would repeat them and there were some questions. Then we sang some songs and then we got to play games like dodge ball. Lots of other kids came to play then too!

On Friday we went to a swimming club gala. I didn't race because it was only for group 6 and up. After the races there was a relay for everyone. I did two lengths of front crawl. I didn't know I could swim that far! I also did a great dive. I also didn't know that I could dive! That was the first time in my life to dive! I am proud of myself for swimming two lengths and doing a great dive!

  1. Wow! Great swimming, Louisa:) So you'll be fine now: if the car gets stuck in the puddles during the rainy season you'll be able to escape! Lol Papaxxx

  2. How was Amisadai's swimming? Looks like a great place to swim. Church looks cool.
