United Nations Day

On Wednesday we had the Uruguayan UN come to Castel Pere to celebrate United Nations Day. They brought with them some pictures children from Uruguay had drawn in order to help our children better understand their country. In exchange, we sent home some Haitian drawings for the children in Uruguay.

After the exchange, a large screen was set up, and the children (look at all of them) were able to watch a film. They really enjoyed themselves. We hope to do it again soon!


  1. That is so wonderful that the children can learn about children of other cultures and countries. Do they every exchange pictures with American children??

  2. that's AWESOME that you are keeping the relationship alive. GO PAIGE! love you!

  3. Paige,
    More rain for you? Yikes, you must hope for no more. We are continuing to pray for your safety...stay dry up high!!! Well, our Rockies didn't do it, but it was a fun ride anyway. Our Denver Broncos aren't showing up for their games either. Good grief...we need some good mojo. Oh well, to more important things...yes, it is wonderful that your children are learning of other cultures and countries. Such a great way to gain new knowledge. We love you. Have a great week.

    Love and prayers, Aunt Kit and Uncle Pete

  4. Wow, Paige!
    Education can be so empowering, and yet, such a wonderful to expose the children to different places, practices and cultures. How wonderful that they/you could participate in this day.
    On a side note, I received a lovely Haitian-made angel from your mother. It's stunning, and I can't decide if I want to put it in one of my offices, or leave it at home. I will think of the children and you, every time I see it! Please thank the talented children/artisans for me, and let them know that they are in my thoughts and that I wish them all good things!
    Happy you celebrate this in Haiti?
    Love to you! AP

  5. Paige,
    It amazes me every day to see what else you are accomplishing and doing in Haiti. Good for you Paige. That is really neat that the children can look into what the children from other cultures are like and what they do. Invaluable. Stay dry out there. We think about you all the time. Miss you bunches =)
    Love ya,
