Below is a side show of my trip to Georgia... I have no new pictures and thought you would like to see these, this was during the summer and the trip was awesome!! I hope you can see it, I am having trouble embed this in the blog...
New Year's here is celebrated more like our Christmas back home. They exchange small gifts like candy and cookies and serve lots of food. Most stores are closed (but will re-open on the 1st business as usual). What is popular here and is not illegal is firecrackers. They have been going off constantly for a week. I see small children lightening them and I cringe. I guess that they will figure it out when a child is hurt with a missing finger, hand or worst fatally hurt.
Well, the weather is Sunny today, High 32 degrees (a regular heat wave!!), but all the snow has melted, which is a blessing for me. I HATE snow. School is out this week so I am making some games on sentence structure and irregular verbs for the students. I cannot find index cards, so if anyone is sending me a package I could use, white and colored index cards and simple lament without a machine. I also have a meeting this week with a local veterinarian to find out the cost of neutering and shots for homeless cats and dogs and basic emergency medical care, I am hoping to write a grant to fund this project. I have a couple of Azerbaijani helping me, so please put this on your prayer list and hope I can do something for them.
