Today was a low key Saturday. Usually Saturdays bring a couple of Bible studies, choir practice, and hospital visiting with our church every other week...and usually a bit of football intermixed into all of that. But today, Eric was off to Kampala for a gathering of all of the Presbyterian churches in Uganda to celebrate Presbyterianism in Uganda. So most of the shenanigans around the compound were canceled.
I started my morning with a 12 K race. Maybe you remember last years race? They did a bit better job with the distance and time for starting, but we did wait around a for a while. At least we had a marching band to listen to while we waited! The run went pretty well. I did it 11 minutes faster than last year (for a time of 1:17), but I hit a wall around 8 kilometers. It was hot and mostly up hill for the last bit. ugh...
Carol and Katelyn have been very busy plaiting Denise's hair. Since most schools around here require girls to have their heads shaved, this is Denise's first time to have long hair. Ugandan advantages of homeschooling! :)
What happens to animals that don't earn their keep around here? They make the unfortunate trip to the banana garden for slaughtering! Should have laid more eggs, gals! All the boys have joined in this massive project... 16 birds for the freezer. I suspect they'll need a lot of boiling though as they were free range.
