Our Treehouse! Watch Here!

We have a treehouse! We have wanted one for AGES! And Dad has built us one in our mango tree ... it's fantastic! We've been eating meals there and playing up there loads over half term. And now we want to work on some ropes and pulleys and maybe get a zip wire to get down! We also had fun playing with the photos to make a IMovie about it! You can see it here!

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!

Bunny Update and Nani Amejamba?

'What d'ya' think you're lookin' at??

My little cutie!
My baby bunnies are now 3 weeks old! They are very, very cute. They all love me so much! I love it when the lick my fingers, because their tongues are so rough and rubbery. I also like it when they nibble me, because their teeth have not yet grown and it tickles.
 
Here are some bunny jokes for you...

How do you know carrots are good for your eyes?
A: Because you never see a rabbit wearing glasses!
 
What do you get when you pour hot water down a rabbit hole?
A: A hot cross bunny!
 
 
Did you hear about the rich rabbit?
A: He was a millionhare!
 
 
And here's one for my Canadian friends:
Where do rabbits work?
A: At IHOP restaurants!
Here I am with all 8 of my little babies!


Here I am hand-feeding the runt, who was extremely thin before.
Look at how much these 3 have grown!
And on the subject of babies ... This little baby was dedicated at Mwanza International Church a few weeks ago. She is so sweet!

A random note: do you know that by adding a little bit of red onto your painting, it will immediately liven it up. Try it and see!

Here is painting I did the other week. I didn't know about the red idea then!


Last Saturday we went to the Mamas Group with Mum. Mama Penina's daughter, Dora came too, but her sister, Maria was away at her aunts house. We had lots of fun, but the funniest thing was when she said "Ah, nani amejamba?" because there was a smell! I won't say who, but someone had "passed wind!"
