5/25/2016 - It was a wonderful morning once again with the sun rising early predicting a warm day.
The orphans left the stockade early, catching the first light of the day in the browsing grounds. Here they settled into browsing quickly without games knowing to conserve their energy as it was going to be a hot day
The orphans then proceeded on to the water hole in groups of five, with Rorogoi, Araba, Bada, Mudanda and Ndoria moving first then followed closely by the other group.
Ndii, Mbirikani and Tundani engaged one another in a bathing competition, with Tundani sneaking out of the water when the game became too competitive.
Ndii and Mbirikani were surprised to find that they were only two in the game when they noticed their other competitor Tundani had snuck off.
After the bath, Ndii and Kihari stood on opposite sides of a tree both scratching on the thick trunk at the same time, before joining the others in browsing for the last session of the day.
