"to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faithin me." Acts 26:18

This Saturday Brings...

...a breakfast picnic.  We've recently discovered the cheap breakfast of Uganda...Millet porridge.  Our friends in Oregon used to laugh with us in our attempts at a budget friendly breakfast...we would buy 25 lbs of oatmeal for $14 and it would last through 3 weeks of breakfast.  Millet is the Ugandan equivalent of budget breakfast bliss and possibly even better...3 weeks of breakfast for about $8.  Most mornings we eat around the table, but Saturdays with their lazy busyness bring roll-out-of-bed-and-grab-a-cup-of-millet breakfast picnics. 

... our 9th day without city water.  Yes...nine lovely days of hauling water, bucket baths and jerrycans.  This is by far our longest stretch without water and no end in sight.  I'll admit...it's getting old...we are praying for water to return soon!

...mama walking outside to find two little munchkins thwarting our efforts to collect rainwater...  Talitha was very pleased to announce that she was "swimmin'".

...baking cookies.  I love that these girls are becoming more and more independent in the kitchen...even mastering the skill of baking with a 2 year old at their feet.

...playing.  No school on Saturday!  We are all thankful for days and times to just sit and play.

***exciting update!!  We have water again!  It may look like this right now...but it's a beautiful sight!  It will clear up after a while.  :)
