Firstly I must apologise for the lack of photos - I have taken some but I always forget to bring my memory cards! So one day soon I will get some posted - provided I remember!

I have enjoyed spending lots of time with Nathanial. On the compound next to Amy's used to be the Palm Tree - a guest house, but now its being occupied by some American soldiers training Ugandans up for peacekeeping, anyway they hosted a July 4th party there and that was good fun - you definitely can feel safe when there are 13 American military beefcakes living right next door.Today I took Nathanial to church, that was good and Nathanial sat very nicely the whole time.
Nathanial is still struggling every time I have to leave him at the babies home in the evenings. I always tell him before I go that I love him, that I will see him tomorrow, but he still struggles. He either clams up completely or he cries. Today, as I was sat doing internet and Nathanial had to go in and eat dinner, he stood by inside were he could see me and cried - I didn't want to go in and comfort him again because I think it would of made it worse having to say bye to him again - I'm not sure that that was the right thing to do or not. The sooner he comes in to live with me the better!

Tomorrow morning I am taking Nathanial to Kiira kids school for a couple of hours - for him to see what its like, and for me to get to know the kids I will be teaching.
