Justine Is Almost Finished With The Mural.

When we particioned off the new children's reading room we had a wide passageway that was crying out for a mural....And along came Justine. That's the way it works around here. When we have a need....Someone comes along to fill it.

Justine spent many hous working with the pre-school kids in their room.

This mural was their's.

Day 25....32 to go.

The volunteers are fantastic.

Day Three.....55 To go before completion.

The machine arrives....A little late but it's Ok.
Wait a minute....It looks like we haave a little problem. One thing about these machines you don't need a jack.
I hope Rufino and the operator find all the parts.
Not to worry....Two hours later it's back in service.

Construction Project Has Started....Right on time.

Saturday we cut down the two eucalyptus trees that stood in the way of progress and today with the help of Criss and Steve from the UK the cement walkway was broken up and we are ready for the skip-loader to remove the earth making way for the new construction to begin.
