School Starts!

Can you believe it?  School has already started here in Lusaka.  The kids ride the bus to school which is about 5k from the new house.  We are the closest Embassy family to the school so that means the kids are the last to be picked up and the first to be dropped off.  So far, aside from the occasional home sickness (Deryn) the kids like their new school and we are pretty happy with it too.  Trevor is on the school cricket team and Rianne and Deryn have volleyball tryouts next week.  Unlike the U.S., travel teams here travel to different countries.  So that will be a new experience for us.  The school is about as diverse as a school can get and the kids have already met and made some friends who are from all over the globe.

Hi All,
Happy for you that the children like the new school and are able to participate in sports. What about music? Any chance? Sorry to hear Deryn gets a little homesick, that happens to all of us one time or another and it will feel really good when she gets back home again. I am sure time will pass quickly, so enjoy everything, stay healthy and happy, we love you all and miss you. Love, Grandma Karin
