This week Zeke and I started Mongolian school. It is fun; we did origami, writing and PE that was crazy. The kids and teacher are nice, but I don’t understand much. I have managed to make friends with all 30ish kids in my class.  I have made good friends with two or three kids so far.  I think I will really enjoy Mongolian school


For the past week Saiah and I have been trying two or three classes in the Mongolian school.  I can only understand about half of what people say, that is when one person talks at a time which isn’t very often.  I’ve liked it none the less; it’s just a bit… cayotick if you know what I mean. for those how don’t , I mean the teacher gives us our work for the day then leaves and comes back right as the bell rings to give us our homework. We just have to figure out the schedule then I’ll have consistent classes, wish me luck!

White Moon!

Tsaagan Sar is a huge Mongolian holiday where you feed dumplings to everyone you know for three days. The dates of Tsaagan Sar are based on the lunar calendar so it changes every year.  There are also lots of candies and fried breads to eat.  In this picture we are visiting the other family in our yard.  The Mongolian man is wearing a del, traditional Mongolian clothes.                                                                                                                                 
                      Tsaagan sar is my third  favorite holiday ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

kitty science

The other day dad said “the cat left us a science experiment”. No one knew what he was talking about, so when we asked what he was talking about he showed us, this:

The question we’re all asking now is where the cat found it? How did we not smell it? We ask these questions because the mouse has obvious rotted somewhere in the house, and the cat brought it and did not eat it what so ever.  Interesting don’t you think?

the baby calf next door

Last night dad came back from taking a shower  he said next door had a new born calf and it could already walk , we went outside trying to gain a glimpse of the calf but they had brought it in side because it was getting cold.  So when mom told me I had to do a blog, I remembered the calf and it was perfect timing because the y where milking the cows right then so I got some good pictures.  So I got a great blog topic and to see a new born calf, Thank God.

Cat Infested Tree

Near Christmas we put up our tree.  Soon after we decorated the tree with ornaments and ribbon. Then are cat found the tree.  She shook it until the ornament she wanted fell.  Then she would play with it and hide it.  By the time we took the tree down almost all the ornaments were off!
