October was a busy month for us. On the 13th we celebrated Abdul's 7th birthday. The children have been busy visiting their families. On Sundays, Uncle James takes them around in the van to the families that live close by and the children have a chance to spend some time with their grandparents or aunties.
They have been studying hard in school and some of them are tutoring after school. We have divided the children that study here at our school into two groups. We have a morning class with the beginners and an afternoon class with the children that are a little more advanced.
Yesterday, we celebrated another birthday. It was the 8th birthday for Dorcas. It was a beautiful day so we had a picnic supper, complete with cake and ice cream. We played games like duck, duck, goose and relay tag. The children were tired out and ready for bed after they had played so hard and ate so much!
