Hellena is like a sister to me
I love her!

Massage is a good way to relax here in Africa.
Here we are giving Miss Hope a message.

I was three when we moved  to Uganda but I remember my fourth birthday.  I had many little friends and wherever I went they all yelled Sophia Sophia.  We lived with emi for a long time then we moved.  We have lived in so many places but never in a grass hut, thank goodness.  There are six people in my family and there are two other people who are pretty much family to me.  Their names are Miss. Hope and Hellena.  Miss. Hope is like my Aunt and Hellena is like a sister to me.  I am so happy to have such a loving family.  My next blog will be about my favorites…places, foods, people, adventures, games, etc…  Hope you will join me.

This is how it all began.  Daddy met someone at work who asked would you like to go on a mission trip to Guatemala and daddy said yes.  But then he realized that he needed to talk to mommy first so he did and mommy said when you get home and if you want to move I will have our bags packed.  And that was how it all started.  Keep following and I will tell you how we ended up from a mission trip to Guatemala to living in Kampala Africa.
