Lately the children been having so much fun setting up and playing market. Cherlise would sit there to sell (she would even keep her babies with her! :-) and the other children come to buy. Sometimes Cherlise would be cooking "food" to sell as well. It's quite entertaining to watch them. :-)

Since the time change (don't ask me why Haiti observes daylight savings) it gets light at 5:30 in the morning and dark about the same time in the evening. Which means instead of playing outside till nearly bedtime, we have long evenings. The fun part about it is that we get lots of reading done. I enjoy reading aloud to the children and we have been reading lots of books about nature.
Cherlise has discovered the joy of reading... :-) I love it when my children are book worms!
Weston is an expert fisherman. One day my maid tried her hand at "fishing" and was amazed at the coordination that game takes!

Pinatas are becoming a tradition on Thanksgiving Day... This cow was tough... the children had varying ideas as to what kind of creature it was. Some thought a pig and one thought maybe it was a hippo. :-)
After the children had their fill, it took the big guys to break it!

The children think Thanksgiving Day is the best out of the whole year. We had an enjoyable day with the GTH crew...
Cherlise had fun spoiling Mikayla...
There were all kinds of relay races... This one really tested their teamwork abilities :-)
(Some of them needed a little bit of encouragement. It made all the difference if they could hold an adults hand...)
And that cute little pair, Kenneth and Janelle, made the best time. They actually won the race! Somehow they figured out how to hop together...
Sack races... even the young people had to try... :-)
Love this little hopper... :-)
And this one, too...
