The kids are enjoying their summer break. Some days they get to do art projects, other days baking cookies, going on adventures through the woods, and best of all what they all love to do swimming.
The weather has been chilly. It has been sprinkling some days and almost windy every day but the kids are always super excited to get to go swimming. We take them every Thrusday morning. We usually go to the park to their swimming pools. This past week there was no one to open the swimming pools for us so we went down to the creek to swim.

Olman and Josue just watch from afar and threw rocks in the water.
Even tried playing soccer in the water. (Cindy)

6th grade graduation

 Ana with her teacher and director of the school.
Fernando, Daniela, Jose, Cindy, and Ana
 So proud of these 5 kids. It is a huge accomplishment to graduate from 6th grade. Many here in Honduras do not even have a 6th grade education. Proud of these kids despite all that they have been through and they still stuck with it and made it through 6th grade. A few of them think they are done studying but next year they will all go onto the high school to 7th grade.
 Terri signed with the Fernando and Jose and I signed with Ana, Daniela, and Cindy. 

 Ana along with her classmates leading everyone in the national anthem.

Sewing Classes continue

The girls started sewing classes back in March. They are slowly learning more and more. Donna has been very patient with these girls and is slowly showing them how to do more. She has the girls divided into two groups. The younger girls worked on braiding fabric and making bracelets and headbands. They even made some to sell in the CASA store. 
The older girls learned to to make an outfit. A simple skirt and shirt. They were very proud of their hard work. 
At the end of the week Donna had the girls put on a fashion show. Some of them had a hoot with it and pranced and blew kisses while others were quite embarrassed.
Then they all celebrated their hard work and Donna invited them to a coke and M&M's.

Ana and Cindy
Cindy thought it was pretty funny when it was her turn to walk down the "runway".
All five of the girls and their new outfits.

Donna is suppose to be back in Jan and the girls will continue with their sewing classes.
