I have always been fascinated with anything I can learn that combines science and art. For example: 1)Photography is writing with light done with a highly technical array of equipment. God is light. And a photograph captures a moment to make a memory forever, and it can be the best gift I could give anyone ever … Continue reading Science and Art combined…my kind of fun
Jack and I took a little trip to Austin this week. We had a couple hours to explore the capital and the Texas Museum before going to Kevin’s State competition for his one act play. At the museum Jack had returning memories of being on field trips as he watched kids his age misbehaving and … Continue reading Part of me lives on in my children.
It is now possible for my family to pass through the dining room, foyer and living room. It was cluttered beyond belief with merchandise from Uganda for a week. It’s taken me every free moment to sort, inventory, organize and store it all into our metal cabinets in the garage…in the Texas heat. Ugh. … Continue reading Market days in Kampala Uganda
Yesterday was our one year Anniversary for the children in our home at Kirabo Seeds Uganda. I feel a little knot in my throat when I think of how much we have done to settle these children into our home. It feels like a miracle to me as I have watched these children grow from … Continue reading Happy Anniversary Kirabo Seeds Uganda!
We have arrived safely into the warm hugs of our family in Texas. We could feel the tremendous prayers lifted up for our travel mercies. Would you believe it was the perfect arrangement of flights for us? We had enough time between flights to make our stops, get a good walking stretch for our legs, … Continue reading A glimpse into the children’s home’s life routine.
Phiona had her phone stolen a month ago. The police caught the one who was using it and called her into the station to identify it. She was gone all day with this problem and it turns out our landlord is the one who took it. I was so concerned that we would have a … Continue reading Struggles of being a foreigner.
I’ve offended my new neighbors already with my American ways. Apparently, not just anything goes into the trash pile behind the pit latrine. I’ve been complained about because I put Kira’s night diapers in that pile, and I’ve made the pile too big too fast. Good to know. There’s a truck that comes around “once … Continue reading A celebration for the Kirabo Seeds family
I have spent the past 24 hours in bed with fever. Maybe it’s been fifteen years since I was sick! Phiona and Robert spent the day in town for car repairs. The exhaust pipe fell off and he was making such a noise on the road the police pulled him over. It took all day … Continue reading Sick with fever.
Downtown Kampala is crazy madness to the fresh eye. Kira and Jack were watching a movie in the van, but Daniel and Peter, who joined us, were on the edge of their seats eyes glued to the life in town. Robert and I agree that new experiences for the children are so good for them … Continue reading Thief! Help!…wait…don’t help.
At six-thirty in the morning Jack departed with Robert to go wash the van. Never in my life would I imagine a child of mine waking at that hour to wash something. But when there are sixteen friends working together on a project it can’t be missed. I had a lucky streak with internet yesterday … Continue reading Simplicity Enjoyed here in Uganda
