The interaction between Elias and Cora is so fun to watch. They cheer each other up, share food, sing songs (that none of us know except for them), play games, and have their own language they use to communicate. These two have weathered a lot together in their little lives already. I’m so glad they will have each other as they go forward, too.

This shot was not staged. Thanks to Soph for catching it on film!


going places.




This evening’s work: planning some adventures with Soph and Tyra. The photo on the cover of the travel map is rather ironic considering Uganda is known as the “pearl” of Africa. Of all the beautiful things you could put on a travel map cover… although, an open road in this country is a pretty remarkable sight! #jam 

arts & crafts market


Every Friday there’s a great arts & crafts market on Ggaba Rd. We adventured there yesterday to see what treasures we could find! Be assured, the kids found many, but we managed to walk away without most of them. Noteworthy finds were a super-cool slingshot for Owen, and a headband for Macy. Macy was the dream potential client for all the women… they easily convinced her to stop and look while Owen attracted a lot of attention in his Uganda soccer jersey (as they say in Uganda, “what a smart boy you have!” That means he looks good!).
