One of the great things about Mongolia is the predictability of the yearly school calendar.
The first day of school is always September 1st. The last is always June 1st. They like to end the school year by celebrating the children. Today is Children's Day.
Johanna and Lydia will participate in a concert arranged by their piano and horse-head fiddle teachers today at three. Their classmates and parents will be in attendance.
Then usually the whole town of parents and kids and grandkids will flood the children's park, where there will be rides, and fun, balloons and such. It's a pretty great day to be a kid in Mongolia. Happy Children's Day!
