Labor Day

Today is Labor Day here in Haiti.  It is sometimes referred to as "Agriculture Day" or Haiti Verte.  As there's no school (and fortunately no rain) we decided to get the kids involved in planting trees.  The above photo was taken by Bill Bullock this morning and was taken in the children's village.  In the center is Mr. Jean Lexima who appears to be happy with the activity.  We planted cherry, palm, coconut, pine, spruce and other type trees.  If we can keep the goats at bay, we'll soon have lots more shade-- a very good thing here.
Berthony, in the orange slicker, encourages the children.
These girls opted to plant trees along the entrance road to our campus.
