Jackson's 9th Birthday
Jackson has settled in to Footprints fantastically. He is inquisitive and always has his hand up at school, where he is doing very well.
On Sunday10th October 2016 he celebrated his 9th birthday. Uncle Rogers baked him a cake and everyone sang to him. In Kenya there is a delightful tradition. The cake is cut and the person with the birthday feeds the most important people to them with the first pieces from a fork. Jackson, of course fed Ayub and David, his siblings first, then Mama Kerry and Uncle Patrick. It was a joy to see such a touching event taking place. The rest of the family and friends were then offered a piece of cake too.
On my next birthday I think this is a tradition I will adopt in my family!
Jackson has a bright future ahead of him.
