A beautiful morning at Amani Cottage
in the dense forest escartment of the great Rift Valley
This past weekend, we enjoyed a getaway for a few days with our kids and two of their friends. This was our first time back to the Amani cottage since we stayed there with the Spring Forth STM last March.
We had such a great time building campfires, cooking out, playing yard games, afternoon naps and losing to our kids in board games. We also saw lots of curious monkeys in the forrest. We were on the look out for the notorious cape buffalo, but fortunately we never crossed paths.
Michael, Tristan, Ava, Caroline, and Emma
We are so thankful for our children and their friends.
Times like this are some of our favourite moments of life in Kenya.
Caroline and Ava had a lot of fun practicing rhythmic gymnastics
on the lawn, where we had some great shows!
This week, Ava is participating in Rosslyn Academy's Annual
Elementary School Spiritual Emphasis Week. Emma is back to
swim team practice (after the close of the Middle School play
last weekend), and Tristan is into full on rehearsals for
Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat.
