Scottish snow in February
We have spent the last few days in a hotel in Pitlochry,Perthshire. It was lovely to spend a few days away as a family and the scenery was spectacular since it snowed while we were there! Sometimes we feel that as missionaries our children miss out on normal activities and life experiences that most children in the UK have (and we know that their lives are also enriched by other experiences that UK children would never be exposed to!) One such experience is learning to swim,the swimming facilities in Cusco are not very good so we hoped that during our few days away that Samuel's swimming skills would improve if we spent some time in the hotel pool . Samuel loved the water and for the first time ever he became much more confident managing to take a few strokes unaided which we are delighted about and will be working on in the next few weeks.
