rainy day kids.

The students rolled in today, doing their best to stay dry in the rainy morn. They sure looked darn cute in their hats and sweatshirts and rain gear. Saul’s Digicel umbrella came in very handy to escort kids and staff over to the new classrooms!  It was so great to see their smiling faces! The new classrooms were rearranged to accommodate a large crowd – 72 of our 100+ students showed up.  Ms. Roselaure and Mr. Jonas led them in songs and reading – spiritual lessons on this rainy day – and they settled in for a movie projected for all to see.

and on top of it all, pretty sure I have a bladder infection!  Grateful to Saul for running down the street to buy me cranberry juice and for the antibiotic that Steve packed.  Whew!
