The fun part of our busy time is getting back to study and nightly book reading with the little ones, along with lots of games and Friday night movies. Rice planting, Nepal Fathers Day, National Childrenís Day and the woman’s holiday of Teej have brought everyone home on the weekend for dancing, music and our Auntiesí delicious signature AmaGhar food.

Speaking of food, some of the girls have been experimenting with their culinary arts on their days off, I think inspired by their sister Manisha, who is getting her Bachelor’s degree in hospitality and teaches them kitchen tricks when she comes home. And we’re working with our new dog, Siddhi to teach her not to eat off of the childrenís plates.
