November 6, 2009: Madi

We visit the center today and play with the children for almost two hours. Tineke brings along one of the larger puzzles and works with one of the teachers with about 4 or 5 children. I stay inside and try to occupy the others with playing with the Duplo blocks but soon almost all the children head outside afraid they are going to miss something fun or perhaps are uneasy with staying too close to me.  But Duplo has a special draw and soon enough many of the children drift back and soon there are 4 or 5 fighting to get next to me and the blocks.

The teachers agree to meet us tomorrow morning (Saturday) even though it is the holiday.  Here we can expose them to the program we have developed.

We work on the Google SketchUp model of the child care center including a second floor useful as a guest house and meeting place.
