Soccer maniacs

I asked Isaac, one of the fifthe grade boys, why they stay so long to play soccer on Friday. He said that it was in their class schedule. He pulled out his notebook and showed me his handwritten class schedule and sure enough Football was in the space 1-2 Friday afternoon. Hmmm, I thought that’s interesting- that’s the first time I’ve seen that. The next day, I go into the fifth grade classroom and look at their bulletin board with the class schedule and what do I find 1-2 Friday afternoon, Departure. He wrote in Football himself to show his parents at home. They are seriously one bunch of rascals.

This blog is about my year in Haiti. I came here not speaking the language, not having a clear idea of what I will be doing to a small, impoverished country in the middle of a crisis. Haitians have A LOT of sayings and one of them is Piti gren fe gro pie bwa, which means a little seed makes a big tree. I hope that my time here will be fruitful and also to participate and observe as Haiti grows and flourishes as well. Seeds need a lot of time, a good foundation, and help from others to grow.
