Tom's first day at school

It feels very strange. Tom is now at school! Well at least for afternoons for the next 2 weeks, then just mornings for a week, then mornings and lunch and then finally a week full time. But then he gets a week off for half term - so not too bad!

It was very cute when Joshua cried because he wanted to go too.

Tom was very excited and talked non-stop when he got home. He rang Nanny and then proceeded to talk her ear off while pacing up and down the room.

Its official

Its hot off the press - we are off to Africa! It's finally now official for the first week in January. Tommy is dancing round the room and wanting the phone battery to stop dying so that he can talk to everyone he knows. I am feeling slightly more stunned into silence but will be in touch with people soon!!!

Thank God we have a cabin and that we have time to prepare to go. We are sooooo pleased that this time back here is only for a season, and while it is useful time in many ways we are soooooo pleased that it won't be long before we will be serving Him on the Africa Mercy.
