About two weeks we went to Musana Camps with David Family. On Monday we went over to David Family to get on the bus. We had to wait for a bit but finally we got loaded on to the bus. It was a very long bus drive but it was fun. One of my missionary friends sat by me and Christina and me talked about books and movies. When we got there after eating lunch we got are tents set up and the we went down to Lake Victoria. All the David Family kids swam but I just played volleyball with some kids. The next day we went on a hike to the waterfall. That was very fun. After we got back we had a huge water fight. That was super super fun. The next day I was sick. It was quite disappointing. The kids went to swim in Lake Victoria again. The next day we went back. It was a very exciting and awesome trip!

My friends and I decided to have a story competition. I was writing a story with three other boys. It had to be 3 to 5 pages long. Are story was about a boy living in mid-evil times. It was called the Recruit. It was very fun and although it took a lot of work. My sisters and there friend were the judges. In the end our story won the most intriguing plot and the second best overall.

Recently we went on a trip to Kobwin and Musana Camps ( New Hopes two other sites) with are whole family and another family from New Hope. We went because my dad was doing accounts at Musana and Kobwin. First we went to Kobwin and stayed there for four days. It was fun seeing every one there. I had not been there for 6 months. I had fun climbing the rocks there and playing football with my friends at Kobwin. Then we drove over to Musana Camps. At Musana we went down to the beach there on Lake Victoria. That was also fun. We then went and stayed in Jinja a city on the Nile. We went for dinner there because it was Christina's birthday. We stayed in Jinja for two days. Then we came back home. In all it was a very very fun and exciting trip.

A few days ago Joseph (in the pictures) came and said that our sweet potatoes and are carrots that we planted in our garden were ready. So we went out to our garden and Joseph taught us how to harvest the sweet potatoes and carrots. It was really cool. In the pictures it shows our harvest. It was really awesome to see what I had planted. I think I will try planting them again.

Yesterday some Ugandan boys came to our house to see if they could use one of our footballs ( or soccer ball). I decided to go play with them, so we went down to the field to play. It was really fun. We had three teams and we played a tournament. My team won. Today we played with them again with some of my missionary friends. Sorry for the short blog but that is all I have to say. It has been very fun playing with them.

Hello everyone. I am so sorry I have not written a blog for a very long time. Yesterday the Americans invited us to their Thanksgiving celebration. They played football (or as we call it American football so we can distinguish it from soccer). After, we went over to the another house to eat desserts. At the house someone told the story of Thanksgiving. Then we ate desserts and drank soda. It was really fun. I got to ride back with my friends on the roof rack on top of their car! It was a very fun day.

Yesterday we came back from the another New Hope site on Lake Victoria. I am sorry that I don't have any pictures but there is not much power there and we forgot to charge our camera before we left so it had no battery. It was a long 5 hour drive and there were huge ruts in the road so it felt like forever. When we finally got there at 8 at night we were pretty tired. But when we woke up on Sunday morning we looked out saw Lake Victoria. It was really beautiful. In the afternoon we hiked to a waterfall and climbed to the top of it. That was really cool. The next day we walked down to the beach. The beach was much different then it was a year and a half ago. It was really big. It was a long 5 hours to get there but it was worth it.
