South Africa doesn't carry chocolate chips, and I was very saddended about that, but another missionary couple happened to have 6 extra huge bags of chololate chips and wanted to give us a bag (Costco size for those of you who know what that is), so here is Emily and I making our chocolate chip cookies... mmmmmmhhhhhhhmmmmmm!!!

Life in Richard's Bay has begun

Abby, Emily and I have just begun this adventure of spending lots of time together, and learning from eachother. I am teaching Abby 4 mornings a week while trying to keep Emily busy with other things, sometimes she joins in our school fun. I'm trying to find my groove in teaching Abby, and Abby is trying to figure out if she likes my groove. I am loving it so far, and I really enjoy the time I get to spend with these little girls.

Most likely on Fridays I will be going to Amangwe village to volunteer in a daycare type place for children that come from child headed homes. They go around to these homes and pick up the children so that their older siblings can go to school. This is also something that I am really excited about so I will let you know how it goes. The Amangwe village is about 20 min. away,
and I will be driving. Yes I drive the car on the left side of the rode, on the right side of the car, it's kind of fun!
