Gong Hay Fat Choy! Elizabeth's kindergarten class (actually, all of the kindergarten classes) celebrated the Chinese New Year (the year of the rabbit) with a fun parade around the school. Moms, dads, siblings, and the rest of the student body lined the halls to watch the masked, costumed kindergartners pass in festive fashion. Caroline's preschool class is also celebrating the Chinese New Year this week, and Caroline's teacher generously let Elizabeth borrow a beautiful silk Chinese (or "Chinesey," as Elizabeth says) jacket from the 3 year old dress up bin to wear during the parade. Here is the class assembled back in the classroom after the parade for one last enthusiastic "Gong Hay Fat Choy" greeting . . .
