The new classroom is finished!

Our new classroom is finally done! The ceramic tile floor was the last thing to be installed. It's now painted in  (what else?) turquoise, seen everywhere in Nicaragua. The teachers and students were very happy to be able to hold the end-of-year graduation here.

For those of you who might not be aware of what we've been up to this past year, these pictures are of a new double-sized classroom that we had built for the town elementary school, San Francisco de Asis. We began construction in February 2011, and although we didn't have all the money we needed to finish the project at the time, the local people told us that we should start anyway and it would work out somehow. And they were right!

Thanks to everyone who helped make this classroom possible.
