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.

I am very sorry for not writing a blog for a long time. I have been very busy. We went to the foreign staff retreat then I had my birthday and then my mom left to go to Canada for three weeks. All the rest of time I was trying to finish my school before my mom had to go back. But since I finished my school I found time to write a blog post. My Birthday will defiantly be one I will remember. It was the day we were going to the foreign staff retreat and we were having it in Jinja three hours away. We were supposed to leave a 9 but my dad had to have a meeting till 10. When we finally got on the road the phone rang. When my mom got off the phone she told us that are neighbours had stopped to get gas at Luwero a town 30 minutes from us and they had filled there car with diesel instead of petro. And since we live in Uganda they didn't now what to do. They finally decided that that they would take the whole tank out and take the diesel out. So after waiting for 2 hours with them we finally got on the road. After a long trip we finally got there. What a Birthday! That's all for now. I will write again as soon as I can.
