Meredith and Amelia (better known as Sister) keep busy playing, cleaning, and designing the various rooms of their fort with mud-pies, sticks, and whatever they can find.
Meredith rarely stops talking. She says phrases like allowed, dinner ready, and her favorite I do it, I do it. Meredith would proudly show you how she goes all the way under the water in the tub. She likes to sing a Swahilli Praise song, "Mambo Sawa Sawa" which translates into In God things are getting better.
Amelia is learning addition at school, African Geography, and her site words (and, the, is, etc.) She is proud to know how to count by twos, fives, tens, and threes.
