Elnathan was happy with his playdough! We were amazed when he began to show some real creativity, adding a spare tyre to the car that Mum made for him.

Mercy was saying "Buuum Buuum" a lot, which is her version of "Yum Yum". This is a big improvement upon squeals of desperation.

From garden to tummies . . .  

Unsure of what to do with the lemon after grating the rind? I often find myself in this position, and hate to waste homegrown lemon! Well, this time I fed it to the children and they devoured it! They kept asking for more. "Buumy, Buumy" said Mercy!

A book we enjoyed together was The Blue Lotus, one of Dave's Tintin collection. Nate is fascinated with them. I read them out to him trying to miss out all the bits about killing people that are included in the adventures! These are designed for adults, so it is extra fun for me to read them, but they appeal to children due to the illustrations.

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from the Stellenbosch Community Development Association website. What a pleasure it was to read about the good work they are doing in a township near to where Dave attended university! This is one more idea for how we can remember the poor as God tells us to do, even when we live a world away.

This week we are thankful for  a fun and successful zucchini pickling night! Too many zucchinis? Try a triple batch of zucchini pickle! Our neighbour and a friend from church joined us. We made 12 jars in all.

Another big thing to be thankful for was Dave doing the washing up while I took my friend home :). We are also one step closer to our new kitchen with dishwasher, having chosen a joinery company. Praise God for that!
