Yesterday was a picnic compared to Thursday's antics! The older preschool class where drawing with stencils and grasping the concept of using scissors. The younger class colored in a bunch of bananas that I had drawn - that's the height of my creativity.  All was calm in the afterschool class as well. The first class was answering the question "What are you doing?" and the youngest class learnt some colours. As the preschool kids have a really good knowledge of English and know all the basics like animals, numbers, colours etc, you assume the young afterschoolers do as well. However they don't and some of them can barely write, so I find I teach them stuff that's more basic than what the preschoolers learn.
 
Today was a long day as the electric went off at 830am and didn't come on again until 645pm. It also rained constantly from about 1pm-330! Apparently the electric was off as they were cleaning trees around the power cables - that's according to the 3 wheel driver. We walked down in the rain to get some shopping and then later on decided to go out for tea as well to get out of the house. So we easily walked at least 5km today. We got back 5minutes before the power came back on, just as I had lit the lat candle! The plan was to get monopoly out if we had to spend a powerless night but now we have the trusted TV and internet back to entertain us!
 
Again we have been invaded by ants. Today they were found in the most random place-inside a passion fruit! I have no idea how they got inside as the skin was tough to cut in the first place! It's all a mystery! I wonder where you would buy an aardvark?
