Those Other Orphans

We're not the only orphanage in Kenya.
Just a few miles from us is The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
When you visit us, remind us to take you there.
As you can see, their "babies" are just a little bigger than ours.
But their bath water is about the same colour as Levi & Gerro's.
I know, because I have to get into it after them some nights!

Hurrah For Uhuru

It was a public holiday here today.
As Kenya's 4th President, Uhuru Kenyatta, was sworn in.
Spent most of the day watching the whole proceedings on TV.
A very impressive ceremony. Felt very moved at times.
Especially as this is Kenya's jubilee year.
Celebrating 50 years of independence.
Blessed to be here at such a time!

Lotsa Legs

Levi & Gerro have been off school for a few days.
Normally they would play football, read books, etc.
But this school holiday has been a little different. How exactly?
Well, the boys decided to start collecting, keeping & caring for ...


Yes, millipedes. And it's just dawned on me.
They head back to school tomorrow. So ...
who's going to be looking after the creepy-crawlies then?
