The kids had their annual International Fiesta on Friday afternoon. This is our fourth fiesta, and they keep getting better every year! Each class performs a song and/or dance, and then the whole school family feasts on amazing food provided by the teachers, from their native countries.
This year Evelyn's class (the Sapitos) did a parade of nations, including the countries in North and South America. Evelyn represented Argentina. The kids were supposed to wear pants/skirts to match their flags. so it was time for me to make a light blue circle skirt. Evelyn was very interested in sewing with me.

Gideon's class, the Buhitos, performed "La Piragua" and he was pretty content to just take it all in.
