Celebrating 5 Years in Uganda!!

Posted on September 17, 2015 at 3:40 AM

This was a holidays for parties which I am going to highlight in the next several blog posts.


First off… Antwain and I celebrated 5 years living in Uganda on August 26th. The time has flown by so quickly. There was something special and monumental about this anniversary. It has filled me some great sense of renewed excitement to tackle the unfinished items on my personal list of things to accomplish while living here… 1st on the list is Learning Luganda (seriously ridiculous that I don’t know this language after so many years!). I even promised students that at next year’s anniversary party I would give my speech in Luganda, which should really motivate me!!


Our party was just a time of great joy and celebration. Lots of love, laughter, hugs, and general merriment as we ate, drank, had cake, danced, and enjoyed being a large SMK family! Antwain and I were also very thankful to have some special visitors and friends join in our celebration.


Still love this place as much as I did when we first moved here!!
