Tuesday Lights Out

I am in the volunteer quarters sitting in the dark, the light of the iPad is illuminating the general area where I am sitting and typing.
The mood is very quiet when the village is dark. I can barely hear the faint sounds of some of the Moms across the compound. And magically the babies stop crying.

Good News, I've heard over the years that the electricity in Aiykumah rarely goes out. I will keep you posted.

Kwame and I are supposed to head out by 10am. I am excited to see all the children. And Teacher Austine and Teacher Francis. I will also get to meet the new teachers and Mama Vivian, the lady who does all the cooking for everyone. They have volunteer quarters there, I will provide a full report. Kwame will be in Aiykumah while I am there. Not sure about the internet service at the school. There is a hotel about 7 miles away, I hope they will let me hit the send button from there and post the updates. I am nervous and excited all at the same time.

Today we did the art project with the little ones, it was great. We made beautiful tropical fish out of paper plates. I will do the same with the students in at the new school. I have an overall end project in mind, I will keep you posted on progress.

Teacher Abigail will have her baby any day now, she is doing well.
In Ghana after they have a naming ceremony at the families home, usually 7 days after the baby is born. Teacher Abigail does not know the sex of the baby, and she said that her husband will decide on the name.

As soon as I am able to log on and post an update from Aiykumah I will. Ma Y Mava.... I will go and come back, in Ewe.
