Yesterday we went to Gradsko, Macedonia. We were happy to visit with our friends Fikret, Tefek, Emilija, Dragana, and Mucko. In the top picture, Emilija is holding a bag of candies, including a candy cane with the candy cane story. Each child got one of these. Thank you Mill Shoal for sending these candy canes! I was able to give them to these children in Gradkso and to the children caroling on Christmas Eve morning at my house.
You can see that Sawyer made himself very comfortable in this class. He thought he was a big kid. Most of the children are between the ages of 8-10. They are very smart and well behaved children. They are good at memorizing which was a blessing to see!
