After a busy European summer filled with visitors, September hit and school started. This term we experienced the weather changing into autumn and then winter. It was fun to see the seasons for the first time through the kid’s eyes. One of the kids described autumn as when it “rains leaves”. School started well, the children transitioned so well and quickly made friends. So much so, I actually cried in shock during each parent teacher interview, tears of relief that we haven’t ruined our children having moved them from Kenya, their “home” country. People at school seemed to enjoy our gradual adding of extra clothing, and as winter hit we did seem to be a little in shock! It was cold, brrrr. I was very happy to get a long coat that resembles a sleeping bag, toasty!

We have been blessed with some lovely visitors. My friend Kez came from the UK for a weekend. Katie, my friend from Nairobi, popped over from the UK. Claire and Grant, from church in NZ, made the trek while in the neighbourhood for a wedding, much appreciated! We had some friends pass through the "hub", Brenda from our Sri Lanka days and our neighbours from Nairobi, Meghan, Reg and Finn. We love visitors!!

Murray travelled, to Nepal, Pakistan and Uganda. Fingers crossed a blog appears about them.

Term 1 finished with a trip home to NZ, our home leave.
