Week ending 14 June

Last week was the birthday of grandson #4, Israel. He turned three (free!). We phoned him on his dad's mobile in Mozambique. Although I wished him and asked his age, he kept saying airplane. This was one of his gifts. He'd spent the day on the beach with his five siblings; it sounded like a lot of fun! 
Three-year-old Israel with his airplane! 

Here's Israel with his mum and younger sister, Keren-Happuch
Here is Israel's older sister, Bethany with Keren-Happuch 

A beautiful family! 


Back home Amanda sent me a photo of the littlest Hedges. 
Isn't he cute!

While in the city last week, we stopped at friend, Louise' home. She'd brought my last suitcase back from Mwadui. How lovely it was to catch up on camp news
Three erstwhile Tanzanian friends: Louise, Jo and Rina (can you see how cold we're here?)

Oh and as for Ambrose almost letting the cat out of the bag (excuse the pun), all will be exposed tomorrow! 

Happy Monday to you all.
