Here are a few photos of our typical day with students and Canadian teachers. We leave the village for the drive in around 7 am, when the village herd is heading out for the day. We have to drive through carefully if we meet them on the street. One morning we were behind schedule, and they were already past our house.

Part two of the day we spent with our company, unless Garry was busy with breeding cows, either here or for someone, one evening right in front of our gate, and one night in another village after a little multi-colored car picked him up. Wednesday evening dinner was delayed as he was working on solving a difficult calving, the calf was stuck upside down. He did get the calf out of the heifer alive, and I got the beans picked and frozen while he was busy.
The guys have been baling straw for people who get it as part of their share, dropping 60-65 bales at their homes. Maxim has been delivering a ton of wheat this week to the people who did not come to pick up their own, on Sunday the people with more than one share came to pick theirs up at the barn, because they get a ton for each share they rent to us.
Today we were driving back into the village when a babushka waved Garry down with her cane. She had a loud conversation with him in Russian, leaning in the car window; the gist of it being that she did not have cow anymore and did not want the straw bales that the guys had dumped on her yard. Garry told her the guys would come and take them back.

one looks a lot like Polo, so he may be the Papa
