Winter nights in Choma

It's a little weird having winter in June, although I guess I shouldn't be surprised after experiencing a southern-hemisphere blazing hot Christmas. Mostly it gets dark early, and a little chilly at night. There is not really a concept of heating here, since during the day the sun warms everybody up again. We do use a couple of space heaters when it gets below 22 degrees. :)

So, what do we do on these cold winter nights? Well, same as usual, I guess. We lock up the house and try to get the kids' bedtime ritual going! Do the dishes, clean up a bit, read a book, do some work on the computer, watch a DVD...

Tonight Michelle was joining her weekly Bible Study in Canada via Skype, so the kids and I built a tall tower out of some wooden blocks. Then they had fun throwing stuff at it until it fell down. They liked that so much that they built one by themselves, but it didn't get too high. Here's a few pictures!

Overall we're doing well, having a few struggles, but plugging along as good as we can!
