Thembalezizwe has a five grade school.
Grahams tell-tale red nose after a few days of this testified to the fact that not all the days were cloudy and they saw plenty of sun..... Beth really enjoyed her time at E.C.D. and was a great help. On her last day the children sang theirThursday song...... "Thursday is our special day, special day,special day Thursday is our special day, its Aunty Beths special day! (sung to the tune of London Bridge is falling down). She had to sit in the middle of the circle while the children talked about why they liked her. Apparently she plays nicely, laughs a lot and doesnt hit others!! We are very grateful for Graham and Belindas parenting skills!!
We had a really lovely time when we went to visit Pastor Peter a friend of Tope the leader of Jubilee Church, Enfield and a great friend of Grahams. Peter pastors a large church and also runs a family centre. He and his wife, Georgina laid on an tantalizing spread for us at their home in Bulawayo. What a lovely couple!
Taurai and Tendai have been blessed with a beautiful baby girl called Nesia (miracle!) born on Thursday the 27th. So far, Makanaka (2) is very taken with his little sister but he also he often totters into school and sits down with the children and is no trouble at all!

Camping with Graham and Beth in Hwange with a lion prowling outside has decidedly put me off camping in tiny tents for good!! A very traumatic, terrifying experience, NOT to be repeated!! But thats another tale....
