Part-time Workers


I have a strict rule about people who “happen” to come pump water right at porridge time in the mornings. Porridge is only for workers who are on the job. But when I stepped out the other morning and saw these little cuties I had to make them honorary part-timers so I didn’t have to kick them out! How can I say no to those little faces? Especially knowing that’s all they will get to eat until evening time. The two on the right end weren’t even a couple months old when we moved here, Becca and Sophia’s kids. We’ve watched them grow from babies to toddlers and are now really starting to show their personalities. They are both going to have siblings soon…Becca is due anytime and Sophia is due in January, although she looks like she is due anytime! Christian keeps telling her she is going to have twins! We were very excited when they both came to tell us they were expecting. They went on birth control soon after their first babies were born and one of the husbands was very hesitant, the myth here is that if one goes on the “family planning” they will have trouble conceiving again. Apparently they didn’t have any trouble, I pay for their transport to get their monthly injections and know they only skipped one month before telling me they were expecting! So that is a good witness to others that there shouldn’t be fear in planning their families.
