Train Track Tangle

Walking to town is quite common for me. Usually, I just get on the old abandoned train tracks and 20 minutes later, I’m in town. However, today, things were different. I found a train behind me. Not an actual train, but a group of school girls all in a line who found messing with my hair amusing. They all wanted to… (more…)

More Chai Please

Well, Georgie has learned how to make chai, but you might want to watch out because I’m not sure what’s in it. Typically chai is half tea, half milk, and a spoon full of sugar, but George has added some new modifications involving some white squishy substance, pinto beans, and some local garden sprouts.

Georgie Boy

Well, Georgie is at it again–using his manipulative baby cuteness to gain attention. I caught him singing to his new baseball glove yesterday. All the children at Mattaw have seen this video at least 10 times.  They laugh every time (especially Peter). Translation:  “We give you all the glory, we worship you our Lord, you are worthy to be praised (Swahili) I… (more…)
