Continuing our work

Message of the Day (shared by Pat): If you want happiness for an hour take a nap. If you want happiness for a day go fishing. If you want happiness for a year inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime help someone else.—Chinese Proverb

Wow, what lousy weather we're having here in beautiful Chlewiska. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm getting a little fed-up with the rain.

Had a wonderful breakfast and lunch. I'm looking forward to our dinner at a local restaurant tonight. That's going to be a good time and it'll be fun to bond with the volunteers. As a matter of fact, on our way back to Reymontowka from Spoleczna earlier today, the driver said the restaurant has great ribs.

We went our usual ways today to teach the kids and adults in the Siedlce area.

If anything happened out of the ordinary today, I didn't hear about it. The only thing to report is that Pat was a little under the weather and had to leave Cisie for some R&R in the Manor House. Since Kenita's class was on a field trip to Lublin, she graciously volunteered to teach Pat's class. Way to go Kenita! Also, Rene and Casandra continue to rave about the interest and enthusiasm of the residents of Kotun. The people of Kotun have demonstrated their thirst of knowledge to learn English and experience, first-hand, the dedication of a few volunteers destined to steer the residents on the right path. We're doing the right thing, aren't we?

Other than the above, there isn't too much else to report.

Just returned from our dinner at the Restauracja Globtroter. We had a wonderful experience.

Another day tomorrow to do our thing. Let's do it with gusto.
