Our young masons working on the foundation and walls of the small structure that will house the generator for my house. Will eventually have solar PV (photo-voltaic) panels as the house is off the grid.

Marcia practicing her reading skills.

How do you spend your Friday afternoons?

Joseph Dieufort, Evens Valcourt, Kenson Jacob are doing homework. Adler and Jean-Jean are shooting the breeze. This is in a corner of the yard at laMadonne where there's the most shade.


Here's Lines (pronounced Liness) who just finished weaving this palm frond. Several fell down earlier this morning so he decided to make this. Put a few together and you have an instant, ecological wall that provides shade. Cool, eh?

Prescholar parade

Here are a couple of photos of the preschoolers leaving their homes to get breakfast this morning. By the time the kids are ready for school, the housemothers are ready to collapse.

Food Depot

The roof of the Food Depot is being poured today. It will take about three weeks for it to cure and then we can start doing some finish work inside.
