10 things Amelia has learned while living in Kenya.

1) I can make glasses from leaves and lipstick from a spice.
2) I can read to chapter 4 in a Junie B. Jones book.
3) I can text message my Dad. (Yes, Amelia has her own phone..are we the only parents who track the whereabouts of their six year old with a cell phone?!)
4) I am learning to sew a quilt on the sewing machine.
5) I can count to 10 and play Simon says in Swahilli.
6) Pesto Pasta is my new favorite food.
7) Reading my Kid's Bible in church does make the sermon go by faster.
8) My 3 year old sister Meredith wakes up early and always talks a lot.
9) I sometimes get carsick here because the roads are so bumpy.
10) I didn't really want to go to school at first, but I never knew first grade could be this much fun.

Amelia - How did you cut such good holes in the leaves for the glasses part? I have wanting a green pair of glasses but haven't seen anything nearly as nice a color as these. It is so exciting that you are reading by yourself! Joel loves to read and has gone through lots of books, especially the children's almanac where he is learning all sorts of new things. Yeah for first grade. School is great.
I love you, Grammie

HELLO-

I did not cut the holes in the glasses. I miss Anna, she told me she would draw me a picture because I drew her a picture. I got your text message Grammie. I caught a lizard in Zanzibar.
