"At the center of the universe is a loving heart that continues to beat and that wants the best for every person. Anything we can do to help foster the intellect and spirit and emotional growth of our fellow human beings, that is our job. Those of us who have this particular vision must continue against all odds. Life is for service." ~Mr. Fred Rogers

Kolky Lyceum's Day of Health (aka Forest Chaos Day)

From the photos (and captions) below, you will see what last Friday looked like for the students and teachers of Kolky Lyceum. A crazy day of many students being let loose in the forest, with some friendly class vs. class events and competitions mixed in. I had no idea what was going on the whole time, but such is life in Ukraine. Definitely a fun day had by all!

Check out the photos below! (Click on any of them any they will pop-up much bigger!)

Also, a Myxa update: Myxa (Moo-ha) is the puppy the school cooks adopted about 3 weeks ago and let me take care of. Well, a huge school yard isn't the most ideal place for a curious and little puppy, so she has found a new home thanks to a caring family. One of our Primary School parents asked if they could have her for their daughters first puppy, and we happily obliged. She will get lots of playing time with this young family I'm sure. They even promised to bring her to school sometimes to play!
