Das sind gute Nachrichten für unsere Gemüsegärten und Wassertanks. Die Kinder jedoch genießen jeden Sonnenstrahl auf ihrem geliebten Spielplatz im Freien und wenn es trocken ist darf dort auch mal ein Picknick stattfinden. Denn wenn die täglichen Regenschauer kommen, heißt es ab ins Haus und bei 100 Kindern kann es da auf Dauer schon mal eng werden…

It is welcome news for the shamba (vegetable plots) but it means that the children at The Nest in Limuru sometimes have to dash inside when there is a downpour during playtime! Just before the arrival of the rains, at the beginning of Apri, the children enjoyed one last bounce on their beloved trampoline in the playground before it was packed away to protect it from the weather. In the last few days before the rains began the staff and children also decided to make the most of the sunny weather by having lunch as a picnic in the playground instead of the dining hall.
