Keith again; Karen forgot yesterday’s blog!!
One job I never expected to have here in Haiti or anywhere is – French Homework Assistant!
Yup, every morning at 7AM I help Ti Luc with his French and geography homework before he heads to school. So far his teacher hasn’t complained.
|New bigger steps. I can go in and out by myself now. Yeah!!!|

– for some reason these guys asked me NOT to help them with their homework!
Yesterday and today I spent painting the guardhouse at the entrance to the compound. Who knew that a white man painting in Haiti was a spectator sport!!

Yesterday after work we headed to the school to play soccer. The little kids and I took on the 4 older boys and we may not have won but we
had more fun. They are all amazing soccer players and agile despite the rocks on the field. I am trying to teach them sportsmanship as well as having fun. Thankfully the game got called at 5:30 due to darkness. I was exhausted!

The boys’ blackboard finally got installed today. Jofky was my little helper buddy holding the level and picking up all the nails I dropped. He mimicked all the noises of the drill and made suggestions on where the screws should go. Priceless.

I finished the day by playing dolls with Djemima.
