We were so lucky to have Philo Ikonya with us. She is the author of the children's book "The Boy Who Became President of America."
Before she arrived, we begun our picnic with ham sandwiches, crisps and juice:
Although all the children knew of Barack Obama, they were inspired and amazed by the stories about him and his family.
A big thank you to Philo and Rene for their time and kind words.
