There several things about Ooty that we love - one of them is the weather. While the rest of India is sweltering and the US is barely thawing out, we have been enjoying beautiful weather since last September! Today was another beautiful day. Not too hot or too cool, light rain in the afternoon, and a gorgeous sunset! Here are some pics that Ryan took tonight from just outside our front door. Enjoy!

On Sunday we went to church, and then over to the Palm's house for lunch. The church had been decorated with strings of jasmine flowers - it smelled lovely! After church we had a great afternoon with four other families and some friends from Ooty. The children enjoyed hunting Easter eggs, and then put on a Variety Show of dances, jokes, advertisements, and wrestling - it was a huge hit! We went home so thankful for good friends!

The week before Easter this year was the last week of the term here at Hebron. The week was very busy! School ended on Thursday and we had some friends visiting from Bangalore for the Easter weekend. The kids had a great time coloring hard-boiled eggs (well, at least most of them were hard boiled - that's the reality of living at a high altitude).

Junior School had an open house yesterday, and we had a chance to visit Lauren and Brenna's classrooms to see what they've been working on for the past term. Brenna's class has been studying the Romans (which explains her costume), and Lauren's class has been studying the Ancient Greeks. Lauren's class also has been studying animals and their habitats - so here's a picture of the habitat that she and her friend Leah made.

Last night was so much fun! Games, food, dancing, singing, and dress up - all around the theme "Metropolis". Here is a picture of Addie (ballerina) and her little friend Tavi (pigeon). Lauren just dressed up for her dance, and Brenna was a chimney sweeper. Ryan played in a staff brass quintet, so I'll try to post that video soon - they did great! I was "on duty" so I didn't dress up. Luckily, I didn't get called away from the event, and I was able to chase everyone around with the camera and even got to visit with a few friends.

Here is Lauren and her three friends (Abbi, Leah, and Mikayla) performing a dance at tonight's Student Council event. They were great! In case you can't tell, Lauren is wearing the pink shirt. All of these girls have the same color hair, are about the same size, and are all wearing Lauren's clothes - so they all probably look a little bit familiar!
