Indian Day

Chief Lempira is a national hero in Honduras.  Every year on July 20 every school in this country honors him.  Our kids school is no exception.

Getting 14 kids ready for school is no easy task any day, but some of them have to go in costume, it is even more difficult.  Kathy came in at 7:00 this morning to help.  Kathy worked on hair.  All the girls needed braids this morning, so, that took a while.  Pamela did makeup and I tried to make sure their chores were done.  No one wanted to do chores.  They wanted to watch other having make up done.

Even Indian princesses have to do chores.

Pamela always does a good job on makeup and everyone was beautiful when she finished.

Dilma made Guadalupe's costume.  I can´t imagine gluing all that corn on to the dress.  Many costumes were even more elaborate.

At last, all the Indians were ready to go to school.

We were late this morning.  But we weren´t the only ones.

It was a cold, windy, rainy morning.  And the program was to be outside.  What do you do when a program is scheduled to be outside and it is raining?  In Honduras, you wait for the rain to quit and start the program an hour and forty-five minutes late.
