Every year the school puts on an evening Christmas Recital, and every year my kids have been sick & we've missed it. I was so happy to make it this year!
I loved the background... "Let it snow... Please!"
We have had very little snow this year and are desperate for more!
The following pictures are of Josh's class performing. They did an awesome job, and bless Josh's soul because he said "yes" to singing Let It Go, which meant every afternoon he came home humming, "... the cold never bothered me anyway." The kids were tickled to sing it, albeit a little shy.
And Sol's class:
Kevin's Yupik Performance:
Then the entire school did a traditional Yupik Eskimo dance with the Yupik Teacher.
It was so neat.
That night our boys received a very generous gift. A woman in the village sewed them each (unbeknownst to me) a kuspik. A kuspik is a traditinal Yupik garment that everyone wears to events like Eskimo Dancing and Potlucks.
The boys look absolutely adorable in them.
After the performances were over, we got a visit from Mrs. Clause!
She gave out candy bars and adorable hand made wooden trucks.
I am so glad we were able to make it out to celebrate the holidays with our school family and the community this year.
