While they were here they painted the 3rd house, varnished all our bunk beds, added a coat of paint to the outside of the 1st house, built a computer desk along one side of the library, and moved a lot of rocks and dirt to finish up a drainage project for us.
So far Jason has taught some of the computer basics to the older elementary grades at school and then invited them to come for a special training session at our library. We had the computer teacher from Instituto El Rey, Dennis, come and teach the kids. Dennis is from Urraco, so it was really neat for him to be able to help the kids growing up behind him. We had about 30 kids and a few adults show up to learn, starting from the very beginning with how to move a mouse.
Our library attendance has been booming since the playground opened. We are now averaging about 30 kids on library days. They come about an hour early to go swimming in our creek and to play on the playground. Then we bring everyone inside for reading time, puzzles, and arts and crafts, before releasing them to the playground again at the end of the afternoon. The crowd of kids then walk home together before it gets dark.
