Back To School

Do you know what it is like around the house when your kids go back to school? Today is the official back to school day for Uganda, returning from the second term break. Can you imagine how quiet it gets around here, when seventeen kids return to school?

Every day we had so many activities with outreaches and fun things. We were running tutoring classes in math, English and science and the kids were busy studying for the next term. There is always a ball bouncing in the background and the chatter of kids as they do all their various chores and other activities. Oh, and there are a few squabbles now and then too!

Now today it is very quiet around here, I don't think we are ready to complain about the silence quite yet, but we probably will be, soon enough. This evening, when they all return home we will be meeting them at the gate as they greet us with hugs and laughter!
