#1 They decided to make "Sun Tea" in my tea pot outside on a charcoal burner and an old piece of metal that the guards use for keeping warm at night. Now there was no fire involved, remember it was "SUN tea" but they thought the metal would act as a solar power object. Well it worked. I guess I should say it seemed to work since I didn't actually get asked to try the tea. That was left to Dad and Manuel, our Mozambican friend. But even if it wasn't good they did a good job of faking it which made the boys day.
#2 They played monopoly all afternoon. We did not bring Monopoly with us from the US but a friend of ours recently gave us the South African version. I am glad they did since at the local grocery store it costs $60 USD for the game. I don't think so. The boys played all afternoon even though they told me "this is good for your math skills," with a look of sheer surprise on their faces. I guess they had a hard time believing they could love something that involved learning at the same time. Oh my!
I love my funny, creative, imaginative, resourceful, inspired boys.
