Hanging out at the base


We spent the whole of yesterday at the base. 

Sophie had so much fun! I hardly saw her.

Left: Sophie visiting the pigpen. Someone paid their staff fees with a pig. :)

Right: Piglets! They are really very cute and really squeal when you pick them up. 


She spent the morning cooking in the bush kitchen (this is just really the outdoor kitchen) with Rinette, feeding the pigs and watching Kalin making a nest for the chick he caught.

Left: A coup for the chick that Kalin caught. He made it out of coconut and chicken wire. Genius!

Right: Hanging out at the bush kitchen on the base. 


She spent the afternoon in the sun washing clothes with Rinette. She was getting all wet so Rinette hung her dress on the line too.

At the end of the day, she didn't want to leave. :)

    Everytime I read about Soph's adventure, being out and about in the nature, growing up in different culture, customs just make me beamed : )  You and James have given her the BEST childhood, which I am very sure she will remember for many many years to come.  She is being brought up with such communal spirit around her that she will thrive as a fine young lady : )  Keep having fun Soph!

    She is such a 'kampung' girl! She is learning a lot more than she would in school ;p

    Hi Pris! Thanks for the encouragement. We really pray so too. It's not easy being on the go all the time but learning to depend on God's grace each time. 

    Nyet, ya very kampong. Donno if she can ever get used to living in the city again. :)
