(Also, we're heading home to the U.S. for a visit in just over two weeks, so hopefully we'll be able to see many of you in person while we're back. We can't wait!!)
Brodie at the school 'Harvest Fest'
The warrior and his gypsy!
Brodie having his first ear of corn. These two events (popcorn and corn on the cob) brought tears to our eyes! You have no idea how big of a deal this was to us - this really opens up a lot of food doors for Brodie since corn is in so many things.
It's been the rainy season the last couple of months, so Graysen and I dressed up and went out to play in the rain one afternoon since everyone else was gone.
I turned 37 on Oct. 17th, so Alisha made me a carrot cake and the boys made me cards and little gifts. It was a great day - capped off by watching a Man U game with the boys after dinner!
Graysen and Godfrey, enjoying a much deserved meal after a job well done!
Jonah after picking a bowl of mulberries from a tree in our yard.
While in London (on our way into the country, me and couple other directors had the chance to do a lightning quick tour of London - self-guided of course!) When I saw this I had to take a picture: a police officer, talking on his cell phone while mounted on a horse, and waiting in the middle of the lane at a stoplight! See, funny cultural things don't just happen in Uganda!
Something I have really missed while in Africa is the Fall - my favorite season! I haven't seen Fall since October of 2007. So this walk through St. James park in London was a huge treat for me!
Another treat for me was that a friend of mine from the UK who lives here in Uganda connected me with a friend of a friend who got me a ticket to see the Chelsea vs. Manchester United match on Sunday at Stamford Bridge in London (Chelsea's stadium)! It was the fulfillment of one of my dreams in life - to see a Man U game! It was a great experience - though as a ManU fan I didn't say a word the whole game sitting amongst the Chelsea faithful! I'd been advised that it was in my best interest to stay quiet!
