Dedelay, background, and Laurenceau take pointers from Hipolyte, our tailor. This is one of the activities for the summer hiatus.

The NEW sport at Castel-Pere is baseball. Andy is teaching the boys the ins and outs of the game. We've discovered some pretty talented kids. Who knows? Maybe someday we'll be exporting baseball talent like our neighbor, the Dominican Republic.

Six days a week and eight hours a day these ladies do laundry to keep our kids in clean clothes. God bless them!

Here's Dino cleaning up after breakfast. Things are rather primitive until the kitchen and dining room are on line.

This is Wilbert, one of our helpful teens, posing with one of the 12 new puppies. Yup, 12!! If only the cows could reproduce as quickly and in such numbers.

I was going to take one photo of the work being done in the kitchen and dining room now that the roof has been poured up on the second deck. The guys refused to let me go until they were all photographed so there are a several pictures here instead of one. Enjoy!

T-Boss, Maxxon and T-Wawa working in the dining room. That was the old exterior wall now an interior wall. Notice they filled in the old window space. The wiring is done (see the conduits on the floor) so we can pour the floor.

Pierre-Luc and Jude faking it. They just wanted their photo taken and will be thrilled it's on the blog.

Those of you who follow such things know that the World Cup for soccer is in full swing. The kids are avid fans especially for Brazil and Argentina. We can't watch all the games --way too many-- but those games with Brazil, Argentina and the United States are all must-sees. Here is a photo of some of the kids watching a game on a TV set up on the porch of our little store at Castel-Pere

Jeff, Davidson, Guerlin and Jackson are all set for summer vacation. They were overwhelmed with the possibilities of what to do. There's soccer practice and playoffs; there's arts and crafts: there's summer school (yech!); there's gardening; trips to the beach and historical sights; and so on. So many possibilities that these four decided to sit and think about it for a while. Nick walked by and snapped the photo.
