The dirt field we had is being systematically covered with sod. This is a huge deal in Honduras, as grass is usually planted one piece at a time (not the seeds, the actual pieces of grass)…or at least that is how it was explained to me and Alex.
The kids are highly entertained by the crew of workers using wheelbarrows to transport the grass and lay it out. They begin in the parking lot above the school, load each wheelbarrow to the absolute maximum and then run down the hill with it. By my estimation about 1 in 3 make it down the hill without losing control and crashing their wheelbarrow. The kids think it’s a hoot and the workers laugh at each other as they careen down the hill.
The sod is almost finished being laid out, and now the maintenance staff is watering like mad so the grass doesn’t die. We’re loving the green view and I know the kids are excited to get out there and play some soccer on it.
