We’re slowly settling into life here in Canada. Four weeks in to our time in Winkler and, with the Christmas tree packed away and people heading back to school/work, I suppose we’re gradually coming around to the reality that this isn’t just a visit this time around. This is home for the next 7 months.
My visa doesn’t allow me to earn a salary here, so the plan is to fill my time with volunteering at a couple of local elementary schools. I’m also adapting the Jolly Phonics reading material (making it as Zambian as possible) and doing a number of other bits and bobs for the community schools and our return to Zambia.
Melissa is continuing to work a couple of days a week doing admin and design work for Beyond Ourselves.
And of course we spend lots of time with this wonderful little guy.
