I feel we often don’t pay enough attention to 16 boys living with us. They are constantly begging me for a “machine,” that is a toy car. Yesterday, Billy and I had to take Ecarlatte to a store that sold fabric. While she was purchasing $220 worth of fabric so the ladies and visiting mothers could make clothing for the kids while learning a skill which might help them earn some money, Billy and I purchased two huge bags of “machines” for the boys. But we did more than purchase toy cars. Some of the male staff, headed by Machenson, have devised a plan for the boys to have a soccer tournament over the summer. The men and the boys have spent many days smoothing out the lot next door that we rent. The removed all the rocks and leveled the playing area.
