Day 7: Saturday Sports Day!

The day started with a screeching sound, that sounded like 'wake me up before you go go' from Erin and Amy. After finally getting our two leaders for the day, Big Cal and Little Dom, out of bed, we finally sat down for another breakfast of porridge! We then set off into the village, to the classroom where we began painting. 

It was at this location that another member of our team was brutally 'murdered' with a pair of goggles (Dom 'killed' Shona).

After having a lunch of rice and veg,  the two boys decided to wash their clothes... Despite their best efforts, nothing seemed to come out clean (Dom's socks). 

The afternoon then consisted of a sports day with the community where the team and the locals played games of netball and football, as well as bubble blowing, sack races, and skipping. It was clear that chef Aida was a professional at netball. A special shout out needs to go to Amy, however, as she scored an outstanding 10 goals... Out of 100 shots.

We rounded the day up with Ellie, Lily, Pip, Erin, and Maisy making a lovely meal - with Aida's stamp of approval.

One of the highlights of the day has to be stargazing (we had our first clear night of the trip, Yay! - Josh) and finding the Milky Way.  

To round things up, morale in the Malawi household is high and we are all abiding by the 'work hard, play hard' rule. We are all looking forward to our morning trek and especially our Sunday afternoon chapel service. 

Much love from the Malawian big sister house and a couple of brothers. 

An update of the euros winner, score, goal scorers, and if Andy won Wimbledon or not would be much appreciated!

We can't wait to see you all next Saturday but are all ecstatic for the Safari this week. 

Love, 
Shona and Callum
