Nursery Unit  July   13, 2017 This morning when the orphans settled out in the forest, most of them were enjoying browsing quietly but some like Pare, Lasayen, Ndotto and Murit were happily enjoying some pushing games as they rolled on the ground and bumped and slid down each otherís backs. Ndotto is one boy who really loves this game and who is always fond of clambering over anyone else who happens to be on the ground. At one point we watched as Ndotto was enjoying climbing on Lasayen and Murit but then he accidentally sat on Muritís head, at which point Murit took Ndottoís tail in his mouth and bit it hard to get him off! Ndotto got the message and quickly got off Muritís head and gave him space to get up, and went to take out his anger at his tail being bitten on Pare, who he found posing with his trunk raised ready to take him on. The two boys wrestled with each other until Kauro, who was watching, stepped in to separate the two. Ndotto is a playmate of Kauroís so the two happily engaged in a light pushing game, leaving Pare, Lasayen and Murit to carry on rolling on the ground.
