New Office Update

On Sunday we went down to Kajjansi (home of MAF Hangar and soon to be office).  The office is coming along and each time we go out we see a lot of progress.  The due date for completion is the end of July 2016.  Below are some photos of the progress.

We took a snack with us and the two dogs.  This was the first time Sox had been out at Kajjansi.  She loved it and was not too keen to get back in the car at the end.  It was a bit of a wrestling match.  Enjoy the photos below :)

The view from the airstrip and below is a close up from the other side.  Below you can see that the rebar is useful for more than one thing as you can just make out two pairs of black boots hanging on it to dry

Pinewood Derby Winner

Last Friday Joshua and Zara's school had a Thanksgiving BBQ.  During the afternoon there were football matches and then a Pinewood Derby competition.  For those of you who are reading this and have no idea what I am talking about then you are not alone because I was in the same boat not that long ago.  Bascially, the children buy a wooden car and can design it however they wish.  The cars are then raced down a track to see who is the winner.  The rules are quite strict with regards to the dimensions and weight that the car is allowed to be.  Joshua and Zara really got into it so bought two kits to race.  I wish I could show you some photos of the race but the lighting was really bad so hopefully will get some photos from school.  Below are the two cars that Zara entered and the one on the left was the winner whereby she got first prize.  In Zara's group the girls came out on top winning all places, first, second and third.  Zara was so excited she could hardly contain herself.  It was a lot of fun to watch.
In amongst all of that there was a massive BBQ.  Simon was one of the guys grilling and he said he had never seen so much meat.  It just kept coming and coming.  We believe there were about 200 people there if not more.  It made our MAF BBQ`s look like a piece of cake.
The school did a great job putting it all together and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun.  The joys of going to a different school and experiencing new things.
