Today we played host to two very lovely children from Lourdes Central School in Mangalore, India, Alison and Gavin. They are cousins and live in the same house with three generations of their family.
Alison and Gavin are here with eight other children and three teachers from their school as part of the third year of our India project linking the two schools. Alison is Ellie's pen pal. They came for tea and had great fun playing on the Wii. They were very confident and talkative, as well as being very polite and helpful. I liked the way they called me and Carl 'aunty' and 'uncle'.
The only time it was quiet was when they were eating, although I'm not sure they knew what to make of my roast dinner. They'll be in school until Thursday, then Ellie will see them again in February when she goes to India.
