Before the race.
Mt Kenya 10 to 4.
The weather has been amazing here in Nairobi. We have been swimming alot and enjoying being outside. The kids all had their swim galas at school. Murray and Charlotte competed in the Mt Kenya 10 to 4 Race. Murray did the Classic, which is 70km, starting from 10,000feet on the slops of Mt Kenya, down to 4,000feet finishing in Borana conservancy. Murray spent the 3 weeks before in Geneva cycling in the snow in preparation, so he was a little rusty, but seemed to enjoy his race. He saw a leopard along the way, pretty cool/terrifying at the same time. Charlotte raced the next day a 9km Mountain biking race, her first experience of mountain biking. We were thrilled she finished and with a huge smile on her face. Hayley and Emma were inspired by all the cycling around them, and had their training wheels quickly whipped off. Hayley managed to ride without training wheels, Emma quickly gave up 😊 she is only 4. We enjoyed camping in the Borana conservancy and the kids enjoyed a dip in the swimming hole. Unfortunately we came down with a stomach bug, which made camping a little less fun.
I am still enjoying
teaching, the kids are enjoying school. They all do Ballet now, and Charlotte is enjoying learning the violin. Murray has started his new global job, which means a little more travel to Geneva. We have 5 more weeks of term 2 left before our next holiday, this term has flown by already.
