When our friend Kim Zahnow shows up to a group of people with her camera, something magical happens. This is particularly true with children. So how could I not share a few of those pictures?

These are the children of the workers on the farm. While their parents are picking in the fields, these kids are doing a little learning and a lot of playing at the Farm school (it’s summer in Nicaragua). They are under the watchful eye of a teacher, and they get three square meals a day. Some of them live on the farm. Some of them ride in from the nearby town of Pueblo Nuevo. And they know how to have fun.
