On Saturday we were heading out to Kawere Village and I was packing up some muffins for the road and some other things for the kids when Lily says, "Mama, little girls only swim in their underwear!" I was a little confused but not surprised by the randomness of this statement. I then proceeded to ask several questions. In the end, Lily tells me that only little girls swim in their underwear and that this bottle can only be used by little girls because there is a little girl on it and it is pink and purple! Lily was referring to the Water Babies suntan lotion that we put on them everyday! I laughed and told her that everyone can use that lotion and that little girls swim in bathing suits or in South Africa they call them swim costumes and bathing lotions! Hilarious.
The new wonderful thing to our kids are HOOKS! I gave each of them a white plastic hook to hang their hats, rain jackets, and bags on. WELL...those are old and as I was looking through some of the craft items that I brought from America I found these fun hooks that are shapes, so I decided to decorate them and give them to the children! They love the hooks! Now, we just have to figure out where to hang them!
Well we have 2 more pets to add to the animal farm here in Nyimba. For Kendall's preaching at the Bible School in Petauke we were given as gifts 2 doves to remind us to pray for the new graduates and their churches! Kendall built a cage for them and now he thinks we need to let them go! SOOO, he opened the cage last night and the birds are still here this morning. I guess they like the kids yelling at them and Sophie (one of our dogs) jumping to try and eat them! Oh what fun!

The ride home was awfully quiet!

Lily and Easton were soon to follow at 6 a.m.! I was so proud of myself for having breakfast (biscuits and gravy) on the table and ready to eat by 6:30a.m.!
Then the day began full of fun stories and sayings....but the ones that topped the charts were as follows...
Lily was standing in the kitchen as the sun was peering through the window at sundown and she says, "Mama...look! I am standing on the sun pencil!" (a.k.a. sun beam)
At dinner, Kendall was questioning if I knew the word "perception". I told him that I knew what it meant and gave him a definition that pleased him and the conversation was over...so I thought. Lily then chimes in and says..."I know what 'peerseptchun' is.." I then ask her to define the word..."peerseptchun is the contraption that makes little pink flowers grow!" NICE! She would score many points for that one in Balderdash! I laughed so hard! She was precious!
Easton looked at me today and said ..."mama...at Zeria's house there is a shnake!" I said..."NO WAY! REALLY?!" And he replies while pointing at the ceiling..."in da rouf!" Kendall still has a hard time understanding Easton and I do sometimes, so we often times have to call Lily in to translate...when she doesn't understand either she just says "I don't know what in the world he is sayin'!"
Fun times in Nyimba! Will fill you in on some other fun stories from this week on Saturday!
