It's been a while since we've posted and perhaps some of you are wondering why when we do finally post it is like a tsunami of photos. We've been without internet for some time now (we switched offices in Olinala and don't have internet access in the new office) and do all of our blogging when we leave Zacango and have regular access to the internet. We hope that you are all doing well and the you will enjoy a few of these pictures from the last couple of months of our lives.
Bruce was very excited about having a Super Bowl party this year. The night before the big game the kids fell asleep to Bruce telling them tales of Super Bowl party food and the promise of preparing that food the next day. Here are their little bite-sized sandwiches complete with coloured toothpicks.
Bruce knew that the kids might not be that interested in the football game itself and told them that they could bring friends to the office in Olinala where we went to watch the big game. From left: Hizee, Diana, Lupe, Ziko, Enrique, and Zam.

Bruce designed wrestling cards with the pictures of all of the members of the Liga de Luchadores de Zacango (LLZ -- the kids wrestling league). The kids are thrilled to see their faces on the cards and each card has a series of numbers which corresponds to a game they invented to play with the cards.
For quite some time the younger kids have been asking if they can have their own art group like the youth have. So beginning in January we started offering art for the kids during the same time block that Bruce teaches them computer. This works out great because we only have four computers available for 16 kids. Hence, instead of having 4 kids per computer, the kids each get their own weekly time block at the computer and while they are not on the computer they are kept busy with an art project. It's turned into a great little class!
