Hi folks!

This is going to be a quick post as we’re snowed under (snow in Benin?!?) with getting packed up and ready for our flight back. We arrive in the UK Thursday morning. If we haven’t arranged to meet up with you yet (and you’d like to see us!) then drop us a line. Also, anyone out there who plays tennis (but not toooo well!!)? I’d like a game or two over the summer if you’re up for it!

Last week we were all a bit ill in at least one way. Madelaine had malaria, Micah had fungus growing inside his lips, Lois had an ear infection and we all had a stomach bug which entailed throwing up and ‘unrest at the other end’!! Still, we’re all better now, but shattered and ready for a nice break! Thanks to Sally & Andy for the loan of their house for the first two weeks (if you know where that is, come and see us there!!)

Concert time
On Sunday, our church group had a concert where children (and some adults) played pieces for everyone else to enjoy. This was mostly Rob’s piano pupils, but also Mads on her violin and some other items. Here’s Ruth playing a piano tune:

And here’s Mads playing ‘Jenny Jones’ on the violin – nice tune!

No more mozzies for two months!!!
Yes, one of the best bits of coming back to visit England is the absence of mosquitos, which are particularly numerous at the moment due to the rainy season (as they tend to breed in puddles etc.) The other day, I managed to kill one but leave it intact (which is pretty rare – they more often than not leave your hand splattered with the blood – probably your blood!) So, here’s a picture of the wee beastie:

Bye for now,

Next post will be done in England!

Have a great time. It is a bit cold here at the moment for us but we are having fun exploring lots of places.
