After a breakfast consisting of eggs, toast, and coffee, our group piled onto the bus and began our journey to Sue's school in Leogane. Upon arriving, members of the group who had previously visited were excited to see that a new building had been put up since the former building had been destroyed in the earthquake. We began the afternoon by leading them in a some fun songs in which many of the students sang along in Creole. While some of the group members led the singing, others had a good time dancing with the energetic kindergarteners. Jerry took some great pictures and videos of the students singing and dancing. Once school was out for the day, we all pitched in to stain the wooden walls (while getting mercilessly attacked by fire ants!). To Matt's delight, we then came home to fabulous meal of mac & cheese, green beans, and mango (a favorite among many...esp Annie!). Our day ended with a relaxing evening filled with music, laughter, a refreshing breeze, and giant raindrops!
Until next time...Matt & Annie
