K. Kindred spirits their days were spent in adventure and exploration for hours on end

O. Olympus offered an excellent challenge for climbing throwing stones hurling bigger rocks and practicing with his slingshot it was his favorite place to be

U. Unyielding adventure is how he filled his days

R.  Racing and playing with his friends all served to to build muscles as well as character
