Love the new pics, Dakota! Thanks for putting them up. The smile on that little girl's face as Scott throws her up in the air is priceless. Glad things went well and thank you for the work you do for these children.

Yeah, you should have seen it for real and heard the giggles. Might as well put that pic right here. I lightended it up to see her smile better. Scott is a glutton for punishment and wears his arms out from time to time. The love those kids give to us is all the thanks we need.

They are all lovely pics, so glad you all had such a good time. That last one of you and Joselin is really special.

Yes, I usually refuse to post photos with me the subject of them, but that one is special.

We have finalized the arrangements and cost for the installation/replacement of broken window panes. In total, 75 of them. The cost is 850 nuevo sols, about $320. Thanks to the generosity of British Expat members this will be one more worthwhile project completed this month. Now we need to look at prefabricated screens to force fit on the outside of the windows and keep the mosquitoes out when the windows are open because of the heat.
