Today was a pretty busy day – funeral this morning, dance competition to watch this afternoon and a session of volunteering at the same event this evening. I just got home in fact. And I’m pooped! The girls got a distinction in their Hip Hop duet and that was great.
But the big event of the day was that Sara turned 16. She goes for her first attempt at the road test on Thursday. Man, it just seems like yesterday that she was sitting beside me in the plane scribbling on some paper as we travelled home to Karawa from Kinshasa. Today she went down to Saskatoon with her boyfriend for her big day. His present to her — with our permission (he asked) — a belly button ring. Yikes – I’m not about to do anything that looks that painful.
Tomorrow we will have her favorite cake in her honor – McCains frozen vanilla cake with little chocolate sprinkles. And ice cream of course.
