We’re painting!

Posted on Updated on

We passed a threshold yesterday and started putting the primer on the window blocks.

All the windows on the front facade are in, and we need just a couple of more vertical wooden planks to close up the school. The facia boards are up on the front as well. I don’t want to jinx anything, but it looks like we may finish on time.

Tonight, Henk gave out European soccer jerseys to the four young village men who have been helping us. Since Nico once told us he wanted to go to Miami, he got a shirt with Miami Beach on it. Smiles all around.

    Impressive progress on the school building! Soccer shirts sound like great compensation for help.
