My school family in Lesotho

I just wanted to get a picture up of my school family. There are 10 teachers at the school and the principal.

In sesotho, the words for Mr. and Mrs. are Ntate (nn-tah-tay) and ‘Me (mm-may). These words actually mean father and mother, so basically I have 10 new mothers and a father. It seemed like that too today when I had to say good-bye to some of them as school closed for the younger children in the school. Classes 1-4 are on break for winter. Classes 5-7 are going to continue meeting until the middle of July. Then everyone will start again at the beginning of August.  I love my family in Lesotho.
