If I love or care deeply about someone or something, my emotions are almost impossible to mask. I cannot even conjure the thinnest of disguises no matter how hard I try. This morning at Bishop Stanway I embarrassed myself with tears of goodbye to the children. Hugs and tears. I can only imagine what they think of this old muzungu lady. As Tally and I walked back from the school, I did not have a handerchef and had to whipe my streaming nose on my sleeves, BOTH of them. Needless to say, I washed it as soon as I got home. The emotion is deep and I cannot explain. When we get back to Pinehurst, I will put a video on the blog of the children singing. The whole school participates in the graduation activities of the Standard VII students (grade 7). Tally and I helped the teachers of the kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders – they wanted to learn some new songs from our childhoods so we taught them “I’m a little tea pot”, Row, row, row your boat” and a children’s hymn. they will sing these at the graduation exercises this coming weekend.

That is all I can write about it now. We said farewell to the teachers and students.
