Elijah licking a wooden spoon (his sister, Eryn had baked a cake for her dad), Bethany in the middle and Eryn leaning over her
Not to be left out, Israel (on the right) shouted: Hallo Granddad! (Grant was at work, but hey-ho) and Baby Kerren staring at the image of her Grant pointing a camera (see bottom right)

After living in the Drakensberg, South Africa for a year, while John worked in Mozambique, Debbie and the children have joined him again. She says it's super to be a complete family again. Joshua told me that although it's been raining a lot this week, the sun comes out almost immediately afterwards, and they can go outside to play. Every child's dream world!
While I chatted to Bethany, who told me that she can jump into the big swimming pool, and go under water until she touches the floor, Eryn disappeared into the garden. She returned with a tiny chameleon on her finger. She said there were about thirty small chameleon's all over the lawn.
Then Joshua appeared on the screen and told me that he and Eryn were able to swim underwater in the deep end of the swimming pool. Eryn popped her head onto the screen and said, they didn't stay in the middle; rather they swam to the side of the pool and held on there for safety!
What a lovely chat I had with my Mozambique grandchildren!
Yesterday Michael and I carried Bibi and Mvulana over to the Guest House. They were both showed nervousness and shivered in our arms. We placed a dish of food on the ground near Edward's askari hut; all their fear fled - they immediately started to eat.
Mvulana looks as though he could swallow the whole dish !
Michael watches the pups tucking in
Alphas Moto carries Mvulana back to our house, while Michael with Bibi in his arms, tries to tempt her to lick the dish!
Mataluma opens the gate to allow us to enter with the pups
The other pups and the adult dogs were waiting expectantly for their dinner!
And would you believe it? Bibi and Mvulana were in the queue when Michael put the dishes of food down.
This morning I have the vet and his assistant here again. He's come to sterilize three cats belonging to a young couple from the Client Camp. As always Michael, Regina and I have set up an operating theater in Grant's large bathroom. The vet has promised to be here at 9 am and all things being equal the kitties' ops should be over and they on the recovery by midday today. I pray all goes as well as it did when this vet operated on Princess and Nando about a month ago.
