The visitors arrived today, Cindi’s sister and children, Cindi’s brother, and then another couple along with their three children. Also Cindi brought her oldest son, Lorenzo, and her youngest son, Diego along. Needless to say that is a lot of extra people.

The kids are off school the next few days to play with the visitors. They were supposed to go play basketball, but it was raining quite a bit this morning, so we ended up playing games and doing crafts at the school, kind of like a VBS.

One of the games we played, everyone sits in a circle, and then every kid gets a fruit (Mango, Apple, Orange). For example, if mango is called, all the “mangos” jump up and have to find another chair. You can also call “fruit basket.” then all the fruits jump up and find another chair. The younger kids didn’t like it much, but the older kids played it for close to an hour.

I had a video I wanted to post, but it looks like you have to do it via youtube, and my internet is really good enough for uploading videos so…maybe next time.

  1. That gamei s called “fruitbasket turnover.” We played that a lot when I was in grade school, especially if it rained and we couldn’t go out for recess.
    Has it been raining a lot there? Tell us about the climate: temperature, humidity, etc. Is it hot or chilly, and is the rain typical for this time of year?

    • In Kerugoya it tends to rain..alot. It doesn’t rain near as much in Nairobi, its just our location. So yes, we are heading towards the end of the rainy season, but Kerugoya is still getting hit quite a bit. The humidity is fairly high, and the temperature fairly low. I would say its in its 60s right now. It’s not atypical for it to drop down to the 40s though in August.

    Annie I enjoyed reading your blog on One Step At A Time:) It sounds like the days are busy and the children are being so blessed by you being there, in their lives, for such a time as this. I will spend more time this week reading past posts while we are in Florida on vacation. Love you:)))
