November Family Life Pics

Vivian, Joel; Emmett




We went up the mountain behind our house and visited our school secretary’s family. She’s one of their 8 children. We’ve stopped expecting to “meet” the families. When invited they show hospitality by feeding us and preparing coffee, but they stay outside while our family eats by ourselves at their table. This has happened a couple times to us. Time to change our expectations. 🙂

Honey isn’t real plentiful here, but we’re told we should get a few liters out of these traditional bee hives. They’re made of wood and grass, covered with manure, smoked, and then hung high. Some recent, late rains emptied a couple of them of the bees that we’d lured in.


A friend gave us an Etch-a-Sketch. Emmett’s been loving it (pic 1). Hudson drew a blueprint of our house (pic 2)!
