The girls are doing great and surely loving every minute they spend. They are still in cultural shock as you know, they can’t believe they are in Africa but they are getting steady each day that goes by. The very day they arrived, I took them to Herb and Ellen’s. they had breakfast then then had a nap. At around 3 pm, we picked them up and took them to our children’s home. We only had the littles there, the ones that come back at 1. The rest where still at school.
When the kids saw them, they didn’t know what to do. Some looked scared, others where shy to come and say halo. Yet, the day before Hannah and Misha’s arrival, they were so excited to meet them. The older ones asked me whether they would be able to get them home at that late time they will be back. Generally, the excitement to have them was really high.
They helped the little ones with their home work and read them story books. That is when the kids started catching up. Speaking in Luganda and throwing a few little giggles as the girls smiled at them.
Later in the evening that day, we went to james’ place . oh! “The welcome” was so big! You Know Misha Sharps’ family sponsors Esther Nyamwiza. Both Esther and Misha were so happy to meet face to face. When we got there, I introduced them to the church, then off we went to fetch water. That was really fun for them. After, we sat in a circle, the kids introduced themselves and told the new aunties what they want to be when they grow up. Later, they read them story books . We then shared what they had learnt. The kids have now learnt quite a good amount of English. Am so glad about that. I oftenly spoke in English too and they could understand. I would come in with luganda but not so much. Later, they taught them a new song, then the kids taught them a new song too, from there, all we did was sing and sing and sing! By the time we took them back, they were sooo exhausted! They slept in the van all through out . I could tell that it was sooo much FUNfor them!
Yesterday and today, they are at Kira’s baby home. I left them there with George. I don’t know what happened there but when I dropped them, I could see it in their eyes that they will love it. I gave them a call this morning to see how it all went and they said Great!! Later in the evening, I asked George to bring them to KS children’s home to spend the evening with them.
