Quote of the Day:    I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich.  ~ Dan Wilcox and Thad Mumford

Our family here at Maisha Na Maji is expanding once again.  Lusi, one of our houseworkers is due to have a baby in a couple of weeks.  She will take about a month or two off and then will rejoin us bringing her baby with her.  We are excited about having a wee one here.  Karen will take good care of it while Lusi works.  Karen never took more than a month off with any of our boys, so she knows what to do.  Lusi already has three boys and thinks another boy will be just fine because she says she doesn't know how to raise girls.  In addition to Lusi's new addition, after two years of discussions, Shaban's wife has finally agreed to move to Bunda with Shaban and their son, Hamedi, who is four years old.  Hamedi will go to the same school as Charlini and Miriam, Shaban's wife, can come here during the day to have lunch with Shaban.  It will make all of our lives richer to have more family around.  If we have learned nothing else here, we have learned that the quote above is absolutely true, and we are indeed rich.
