Rich Man's Slum

Lawrence calls the nice area of Kampala “The Rich Man’s Slum.” This kid cracks me up! I guess you can say we went slumming it tonight. A friend of Melissa’s invited us and another couple over to their house for swimming and dinner. It was so nice to get out of the house and do something fun. Tim got in the pool with Moses and I tell you that boy loves the water. They fixed chicken burgers and man they were so good. They even had real ranch dressing! That is something I really have been missing…veggies and MEAT!!!! They eat so many carbs here it is killing me. I just knew I would be starving while we were here and loss a few pounds but NOOOOO, I probably have gained 10 pounds! Who wants to be in charge of bringing me some stretchy pants to the airport?
Tomorrow we are going to church and then the Smith’s will be back sometime after dinner. This next week will be busy. We have our Visa interview with the Embassy on Monday and hopefully getting their Visas Wednesday or Thursday. If that is the case we will be booking a flight home!!! I pray that is the way things work out because the Presidential elections are Thursday and we would like to be gone before that.
The boys are doing great! Tim has been moody the past few days and I think he is just ready to get home. Pray we can make in another week without killing each other.  There are so many little things I want to share that have happened but I want to add a few pics and go to bed for now. Maybe that will be the next post.
