It was an enormous undertaking. It took a couple of months of preparation - in both his regular class and music. I'm constantly awed by the excitement, energy and commitment his teachers have for their kids.
With a name like ours, you've got to be German, right?
For food, we settled on Windbeutel (German cream puffs). We had every intention to make them, but Luke came down with the flu and time got away from me. Instead, I bought them at Target in the freezer section. Of course, the box said BELGIAN Cream Puffs in a huge flashing neon print, so I ditched the box and we passed them off as German. As Zach said, "They're neighbors. Close enough."
The music program was adorable. Zach led the entire 3rd grade in the costume parade around the gym. (Yes, I'm aware that the photo quality is terrible.)
"Sasha! Sasha!" was a really great number. So fun!
And Zach was awesome on the drums in "Kumbaya".
The International Festival was a huge success. Such a great learning experience for everyone. We are truly blessed by our school.
