Nathanael In The Summer Program

Since we have been back on board Nathanael has been able to participate in the last 2 weeks of the summer program that they hold on board for all the kids. During their school summer holidays we have a team that apply to come and run a summer program for 6 weeks. This is Sam & Bethany who have been running the pre-schoolers group. They have lots of energy and enthusiasm.
It has been a time packed full of fun stuff, whether it's stories, songs, crafts, baking, messy play, treasure hunts, field trips, you name it, it's probably done. Each morning Nathanael stands at our door asking to go, usually he needs to wait at least an hour before it starts and he doesn't like to wait because he loves it so much.

Today we sailed. Or maybe I should say we did a harbour tour. We moved the ship over to the other side of the harbour to the fuel terminal so we could take on some more fuel for 24 hours and then move back. This is the view from our window!
Nothing like the smell of fuel to start your day.

We're Back on Board

Sorry for the the quietness on our blog over the last few months, we were finding that the dial up connection that we had in the USA was not up to speed for blogger, but we're back on board now and so hopefully we will be back with more regular news.
This label seemed to be a common theme on our luggage when we flew to Benin, we just couldn't help stocking up on some of those little luxuries in life: teabags, Nathanael's clothes up to age 4, DVD's, toys and of course that one essential in life, glycerine, so some of our friends here can make a Christmas cake in December with icing that doesn't need a sledge hammer to cut it like last year (and you think I'm joking!)
Meanwhile, thank you for all your prayers concerning Tim's license. It arrived the morning we left the USA so we were able to pick it up on the way to the airport. How about that for timing. So he is now qualified for another 5 years...Thank you GOD!!!
