The Cardiac Team and Anatomy Lab!

 For two weeks in January, we had the priviledge of hosting the Cardiac Team from Ocala, FL.  The best part about it?  The heart surgeon was Dan's oldest brother John!  They operated on 16 patients, including the wife of one of the professors at the nursing school.

 We had so much fun with John's team, and ate many meals together, including a special surprise that John brought all the way from the U.S. - a whole beef tenderloin!

With meals comes many dishes!  Thankfully John and Dan were willing to help out.

All of our kids LOVE uncle John!

Speaking of part of our homeschooling curriculum here at Tenwek, we have been arranging anatomy teaching labs with the docs around Tenwek.  Here is Dr. Russ White teaching the kids with a cow heart from the Tenwek butchery.

Levi has especially been into the experiences.  He was given a pair of scrubs from the Osteens that he wears to these special events.

I think I know Levi's future career!

Like Father, like son.

Dan did a lab on the musculoskeletal system using cow bones guessed it...the Tenwek Butchery.

Dr. Steve Burgert did a lab on the gastrointestinal system. 

Levi and Chuma.

Levi's report he recently did on "German Shepherds."

Love the pictures Heather! The kids look like they're really learning some cool stuff and in such a fun way.
