We had a lot of things going on in January after we got home! Gayle decided to paint the garage roof. He went over all the rusty places with a wire brush, and then painted them with something to stop the rust. He got two coats of paint put on all those places, and one coat on the rest.
Esther took some friends to see the old dredge at Ngahere one rainy day.
Later that week, also on a rainy day, we took some other friends to Shantytown, a historic village. We got to the school in between lessons on using old-style pens, but with the supplies laying out on the desks, we figured out how to use them.
Elijah spent a few months building himself a desk (he finished it just when he quit school to start his apprenticeship!).
This was our second picking of cucumbers. The next four weeks or so, I got twice this many each week.
Our salad one evening. Mr. Imagination and Little Miss decorated it for us!
