Way's here!

Uncle Way arrived a couple weeks ago for a summer of Camp Kenny with Matthew and Ruby. Ruby is still in school, so right now it has been Way and Matthew leading a busy schedule of baseball, chess, self-defense, drumming, writing, art/crafts, etc.  Not to mention a couple shopping trips.

We've also been keeping busy on the weekends checking out some nearby sights.  The first weekend he was in Kenya we visited a local park and a market:

Last weekend we went to Crescent Island where we went on a walking safari with zebras, gazelles, giraffes, wildebeests.  En route we stopped for nyama choma (roast meat) and fresh juice.

This past weekend the boys headed over to the arboretum. We had a great time playing ball and getting some Kenyans into the mix too.  Later in the afternoon we joined a drum circle and banged away for a couple hours.

In non-Way news, last week before Father's Day Ruby and her school had concert for daddies.
Also Matthew and Ruby's teacher Angie from the Schoolhouse is in Nairobi as an intern for Rhonda's organization.  Ruby especially has been having a ball whenever she sees Angie.
Two weeks ago I also started my new job with the Embassy.  I am still figuring things out but it has been very interesting and a new experience working in the government sector after many years in corporate life.  I thought companies had a lot of acronyms - but in government entire sentences are made up of acronyms - it is like learning a new language!
Also June and July are the 'cold' season here in Nairobi. When not at work, we're still wearing shorts and t-shirts, but many of the Kenyans are buddled up in parkas and wool hats!
