We’ve had a week without rain but this morning we got a little. It’s cloudy so hopefully it will continue to rain today.
We did some kinesthetic learning in science this week trying to set up an inclined plane that used a pulley. One group was successful the other group was close. They enjoyed it .
The frangipani tree has just started to flower. It was planted for me about a year ago. We can sit under it when it’s big enough. I think it has a ways to go! They are beautiful trees and do get quite big. Of course the really big ones I’ve seen were planted by the missionaries. Hopefully it won’t take one hundred years!
I want to assure you that there was not a catastrophe here at the teacher training college. The two classes who are in their second year had their practical learning for their Red Cross training. They had done the theory in June and have now completed the course. They were very serious during the practical part. It’s amazing to realize that the Red Cross truly does have branches all over the world.
It is always a beehive of activity on Saturday morning with cleaning inside and out all over the grounds. Students are good about doing the work here to help pay their fees. Some had a bigger struggle to get here this year. A group of three women walked 24 miles after the vehicle broke down. The men stayed with the luggage and were able to get transport to get themselves and the luggage here. Another man spent 4 days on the back of a truck to get here. One group of 3 came part of the way—a long part, on motor bikes. The motor bike part took the majority of one day.
We have five chicks that are running around which you might be able to see in the pictures. There are the two hens sitting on one nest and I could see for sure one chick. I think there will be more hatching today. We hope to be getting eggs soon. The eggs that come from Uganda are not so good since they are always on the road for so long.
