Lots of Girls!

It's either the bane of my existence or the greatest blessing of my life.  I'm leaning toward the former.  But God keeps bringing us more girls.

From Left:  Modiehi, Motshidisi, Dieketseng, Ntswaki, Christina, Paulina, Lerato, Monica
On a separate and unrelated note, 3 of those girls are teenagers.

The other day I had all the children in my house helping me sweep up some of the construction mess.  One of the kids asked me if our family was going to move into that house when it is finished.  Jokingly, I said "No, Motshidisi and Dieketseng will live here after they are done with school."  Then I asked Motshidisi and Dieketseng if they would like that.  After some thought Motshidisi responded "Then where would you live?"

"We would live in town" I said.

Showing a surprisingly uncharacteristic burst of self-awareness, Motshidisi countered with the following "If you didn't live here who would we complain to?"

And that's the reason nobody likes teenagers:-)
