Wednesday cricket, taekwondo and more...

G. is the webmaster for the school here and part of his duties is to upload the team lists for the various games each week.
I was kind of aware that there were all kinds of games going ahead today but when he was doing the lists yesterday you could have knocked me down with a feather when he said "Did you know A. is playing tomorrow against St Andrew's Turi" - I am clearly a very disloyal parent because my initial thought was "they can't want to win very much if they are putting A. on the team" but apparently he did ok and he was very excited about it when I talked to him before he left this morning!

It transpires that this is not his only match either, he is also scheduled to play a full day Taekwondo tournament in Nairobi on 6th November (together with E.)!
I've never known my children to do so much sport and considering that A. had never even held a cricket bat until we arrived in Kenya I am quite proud of him.

This evening the entire staff had a Child Protection Meeting which was very interesting in some ways and kind of self-evident in others. The wine and cheese were especially appreciated as it certainly livened up the meeting!

Finally,before I call it a night I have to mention an excellent book I am reading at the moment it is called "Newton and the Counterfeiter" it is extremely interesting and I can't put it down!

  1. It is a very good book. Imagine what one can find at W H Smith's at the port in Dover.
