Sports Day

Yesterday, (written on July 13) my family rode to Katooke to go to the primary school sports day. The boys were playing football (soccer) and the girls were playing netball. But we were waiting until 1:30 to start instead of 10:00. Everyone who was playing had to line up and be weighed and measured before they could begin. You had to be in the range of height and weight to play.

So when we finally got started, we were getting pretty hungry. We bought some chapatis to tide us over. The girls started to play at 1:30. They played well, but unfortunately lost all 3 of their games.

Then the boys started to play. Our team was not playing first so my mum took a few pictures of the team. The ones with orange pinnys are the substitutes and the ones with the teal jerseys are the ones who played. Junju, in David Family, was on the team. They lost their first game 1-0 but tied the other two.
Being out in the village, reminded us of the situation of so many children here. At Kasana, we see children being loved and cared for and we sometimes forget that outside the compound there are children who have not had a meal to eat for days. We got some pictures of some of the kids.

  1. Sounnds like you need lots of patience to go to a sports competition in Uganda. It is always fun to cheer when you know the players on a team.
