It was a beautiful day with several games going on in the school yard, under the overhang of the two-classroom building students continued to make baskets while others were helping with the sewing. It reminded me of a school fun day in Canada.
It was an hour or so of entertainment. Nelson and the students performed as well as some of the local cultural dancers. It was great to see members of the community drop by, especially all the small children.
The day ended but not before Nelson had to rush off. I don't want to end this post on a sad or serious note but it is the reality of their life here. His son Nellie, whom you met in yesterday's post has contracted malaria and is in the hospital. What it brought home is that parents, wherever they are from, want the best for their children. Nellie is going to be fine. This tough little three year old has unfortunately had malaria before.
