Marulaon School

We're trying to show Nahna and Papa how we live here in Marulaon.  One of the things in "Marulaon School" is how to scrape a coconut.  We needed some coconut cream to cook our kalimeta, so I showed Nahna how to scrape the coconut.  She says, "Praise the Lord, I didn't cut my thumb off!"
Yesterday, our inverter died, so we're back to washing our clothes by hand again.  Thankfully, we had practice in Papua New Guinea, and we have people willing to help us out here.  We've finished the painting and almost completed the varnishing, so now the cleaning and packing for Honiara can begin in earnest.

I tend not to leave many comments when I know you can't "see" them... on Marulaon.

But you are not out-of-sight-out-of-mind.

Praying that Katherine feels better,

My Mom told me they were there--I'm glad she didn't cut her thumb off, too! Enjoy your visit and tell them hi from me. :)

Is there a coconut scraping tutorial to follow?
I'm glad no one needed stitches or super glue.
