School is back in session for a new year. The children go three terms starting in February so we always are sad to see many go back to boarding school. I miss them greatly on Sundays! My older class is smaller until holidays but we still have close to or a little over one hundred under five children every Sunday. Today was over one hundred! Loud but my heart fills with joy to see their happy little faces. I still had nineteen older kids in my class including Raelee! She has decided to start coming to the older class which I know has been a hard choice for her since she loves taking care of the little ones. I am very proud of her choice!
I met a couple in Jinja at the farmers market who were promoting their Christian homeschool curriculum that is geared toward African children. I was so excited to see this and be able to use it for Sunday School. It has been very challenging to find curriculum and lessons that can be changed so that the kids here can relate and understand. They don’t face the same things that American children face so it sometimes took me a lot of searching and adapting lessons. The book I got goes through the Bible in a year but it is made to do every day in homeschool so it will definitely take us longer to get through. I am happy about that! It comes with a book that has printer friendly activities and pictures that go with the lessons. Today we were able to make little books they can take home. It was an exciting morning getting to use glue sticks! I think this is really going to be a good book to work through.
