Myron: We can share because we’re friends… I’m sad because we’re taking Aunty Debs back to her home… Mummy, when are we going to go to England?

Yesterday in the wee hours of the morning we said goodbye to Aunty Debs who came to visit during her Easter school break. It was certainly a week and a half of work and play. Thankfully Debs is a teacher so I dragged her across the countryside (pretty literally) to help observe lessons, give feedback and encouragement, and also dabble in some teacher training. Certainly one of the most easy-going guests we have ever had.

Thanks Debs for visiting us! We will miss you, but so thankful that you finally came to see us and our crazy Gulu life.
