It is almost a week ago since my last post. We have been busy with getting ready for school, tomorrow the schools will begin again. Some of the older children, who are now living back home, but are going to boarding schools, have been coming for school fees etc. We have also some children with malaria, so we are always busy.
But I went to Kampala with my children... We are planning to go to the Netherlands in December as a family and I had to go with them to the Dutch Embassy for the visa application. I wanted to do it in the holidays, so they don't miss school. On the picture you see them waiting in the embassy, it was cold, so the sweaters were put on. They were complaining! I told them that in December it is much more colder in Holland then now. Helen discovered the water machine and she drank many cups with water, what made her going to the toilet several times. You have to do something when you are waiting!! But we got our application done and now we wait for their answer. We have been together to Holland several times, only for Catherine it is the first time. I believe there will be no problem.
When I left to Kampala, all the children in Amecet were fine, but in the evening I got a phone call about Joseph, who got convulsions, and in the night I was called again about a baby who had to go on IV drip. The two Dutch volunteer nurses, Petra and Marianne, did really well. It is good to be back in Soroti after two days Kampala, sitting in traffic jams! The children are fair and tomorrow schools begins!!!
