Mother's Day

Our first Mother's Day in Botswana has been interesting. I called my sweet Mama Saturday morning (her time) and we had a delightful call. I received some delightful notes from my daughters and sons. Wow! I am surely blessed. I had a rotten cold so I stayed home from church. Elder Gubler got to substitute for me in Primary (he hasn't been in primary for YEARS). After church I received 2 text messages from the RS President and from the Bishop's Wife (the sister who ALWAYS helps out in Primary.) They wished me good health and a happy Mother's Day. In Botswana, it's really Mother's Month for all of May. Elder Gubler kept with tradition and fixed me breakfast. (Very yummy avocado sandwich.) He didn't see any wild flowers in our yard. (Darn!) In Botswana, people LOVE the raked dirt look. This morning, he surprised me by finding a wild flower in the back area of our flat complex. So, my Mother's Day was pretty nice. Hope that all of you wonderful women had  happy Mothers Day too!

Learners in Botswana

A car driving down the road in front of our flat (yes, we were behind it)
Well, it's about time! Only one and a half months...definitely time for a new post. I thought I would post of something we enjoy quite a bit here in Bots. For most of us, a big "L" means "loser" but here in Bots, it stands for something entirely different. It stands for "Learner". So that those who are learning don't get mixed up with those who have experience the "L" separates them.

Instead of a "Driver's Ed" logo you get a big "L" on the back of your car.

Even worse is if you are new at your job as a server, You also get a HUGE "L" on your back. :-)
Our very cute and excellent "new" server at Spurs.
