Over the Christmas holidays, we had 10 to 20 neighbourhood kids in our house almost every day, making Rainbow Loom bracelets and playing games. John got a Frisbee for Christmas and we also enjoyed playing with that.
John, as usual, has made friends with all the children who live near us, and it isn't uncommon to find him playing football or tag with the boys. And all the little kids love John. The Ugandans don't have school in December or January and our 3-year-old neighbours did not understand why their big siblings were out of school but John wasn't. This meant they would come to our big window, peek in, and say, "John, jangu!" (John, come). They were always very excited when John came to play with them at break-time or in the afternoon.
