Attending Classes (including PE)

It's hot here in Kenya...yes, "Africa hot." We attended math class, physics, English and PE (soccer/football in the hot sun in a maxi dress, and that was Jeff).  For the record, my team won 2-1 (I played defense and they scored the single goal on me). 

Now preparations are in full swing for gradation. 

As we sat in classes I was blown away. The girls aren't just engaged, they are hanging on every word. They participate competitively. Knowledge is dangled before them and the reach for it as though it would disappear if not siezed immediately. And they are always prepared. They come ready, studied, well-read and hands raised to answer every, seriously, every question. 

It's inspiring.
