Hours with out Katie

It's Mallory here...

I made it here (gwen that was for you). Yesterday, as most of you know, Uncle Mike, Auntie Suzanne, Katie, Grace, and Michael left for Kenya, so we decided to have a little fun...Today Raul took my dad, Landon, Anna, and me to a couple of schools. At the first school there were mostly kids under 10. When we first arrived, we were mobbed by kids surrounding the car. We got out and the only thing they wanted to do was pet us. They LOVE our white skin! When we got to sit down everyone wanted to sit down in our lap and hold on to our hands. At the end dum dums were passed out and man they loved them! As we were passing out the dum dums i began to realize how spoiled we are. Not one of the kids asked if they could have a certain color they took what they were given and were satisfied. Many of us always want one certain thing but God may have a different plan and we should be satisfied with what he gives us. The second school we went to was on the other end town. At this school, tuition costs around 20 dollars for the kids to go to schoo, and every one of them pay for themselves. I realized how much my parents have provided for me as they pay for me to go to school and it is WAY over 20 dollars. This school was filled with cheers and welcomes for the "muzungas" (white people)..okay im gonna get off topic real quick... Auntie Suzanne is in the middle of catching a lizard and it is VERY entertaining...! (i have began to realize here that she is fearless of bugs...) Any way... we came home and about an hour later, the Kenya crew came back...Katie's kids were SO excited! So we all survived and everyone is home safe and sound...

Good Night from Uganda!
