Well last Saturday was the walkathon.  A nice 17 km walk from the school to Zampa Point and back.

Of course, that is a bit far for our girls (Emi is 6 and Mika 4).  However, the younger kids were allowed to take a bus halfway and walk back to the school. 

I expected to hear complaints and grumbling, but surprise, surprise the girls really enjoyed it!  In fact, they are ready for the next one.  They did great as did mom and dad and Debe's mom walked it as well.

At the finish line were many games and booths-- like a carnival.  We also got to enjoy OCSI's famous fried chicken. 

Most importantly though, was the witness we were to the local community and our student's parents.

We made it!
All in all, it was not a bad way to spend a Saturday, as we also raised funds to improve the school.
