After a dry week it has started raining again and James reports that his African parents are fine and very busy planting, which they do before and during rain.
On a sad note: Saturday he attended the funeral for the mother of one of his form 2 students. This is the second funeral he has attended for a parent of one of his students.
The puppies are growing and getting pretty rambunctious: they were chewing on James shoes as we talked. He said that the adult male dog followed him to school yesterday and hung out there all day. This is the first time he has done this and James theorizes that he may be a little tired of being followed about by vigorous puppies.
