I'm sure you have all heard by now that we finally received our letters from Africa - part of me had begun to think we were never going to get a reply. After back and forth communication between the school and myself on Monday a parcel arrived, and I was so happy it was like Christmas had come early. When Esiteti wrote to us there were only 13 children in the entire school so that meant not everyone received a personal letter back, but the children were more than happy to share their letters and the excitement was fantastic. I am so proud of their patience and I am so happy with their response and eagerness. I have said to the children that if they want to write a reply then I am more than happy to send their letters on, and I've informed them that they may have to wait another 6 months or so before they get something back - as it turns out our letters had to go via America as the woman I was talking said there was a greater chance of them getting to us from there as the postal system in Kenya isn't the same.
