Time has been passing very quickly since we returned to Canada in February on our break.  Our main concern in coming home was Karl’s father’s health and we are thankful that he has stabilized and is doing quite well now.  It has been good to have time with him and and rest of the family, as well as to help out with some of the care.

We have also been able to do some research and gather resources for our work at the Timothy Centre.  Karl has made good progress on developing a beekeeping training manual for the Timothy Bee Centre and we will be purchasing some equipment to bring back as well.  Arleen continues to work on developing teacher training curriculum materials for the Timothy Centre teacher training programs.

It has been good to have some time to also work on some home repairs and small renovations.  Karl has been kept busy inside and out!

We have also enjoyed the chance to spend some time in the great outdoors exploring the local parks and taking in some of the cultural events in the community.

We even have some interesting wildlife in our backyard…not quite like a Ugandan safari, but wildlife nonetheless….

We have followed the blogs of our coworkers in Uganda with great interest as the Timothy Girls’ College opened its doors for the first time on Feb. 21 and the official opening took place with much celebration this last weekend.  We look forward to seeing everything in action when we return in May.
