8-days I have spent (including right now) at the training for the new group of PCVs in Kanye.

12-lessons I have taught at school in the past few weeks.
3-New plots we have made in the school garden
9-The new total number of plots
3-school parties for end of year for standard 7 and sports contests
36-new standard 1 pupils for next year
4-weeks left of the school year till January
2-new staff members we have gotten in the past 2 weeks
1-leopard I learned broke out of Khutse and is nearby in the wild (in related news I have decided to stop doing my long run where I leave the village and just sticking inside it from now on).
1-house guest (John O. came for my chief's wedding on Saturday)

50000-the number of words I am writing next month. This is the big announcement. I am doing National Novel Writing Month. Several other PCVs are going to do it too. It starts on November 1st. So I will be just word vomiting on a topic I still have not picked, with characters I need to map out. If it turns out to be readable I will post pieces I like on the blog. But that also means the general blogging will be down for much of November unless something really interesting happens.
