A Day at a Zambian Farm

On Friday, Kerri took Gracyn, Caleb and Thomas to a farm about an hour outside of Lusaka. A family, who is managing the property invited her and several other missionary families out for a "field trip." Most of the children are home-schooled. So, there are a group of mothers who try to get together about once every other month for a field trip to different places. The kids had a great and came back with a lot of goodies.

Some of the highlights of the day were:
  • Getting to ride on the combine as they harvested Maize. They told the kids that you can regularly see cobras and black mambas being combine head as they went across the field harvesting.
  • Getting to jump on bails of hay that were stacked 2 and 3 high.
  • And getting to swim in a container full of maize kernels where they found many bugs and 1 dead mouse.
This is the fun stuff your kids get to do in Zambia!
