with the kiddies.
For my readers at home: Chuseok is a three-day Korean holiday that traditionally celebrates the autumn harvest. For us waygooks, it means a four-day weekend. (Asa!) For Koreans, it means returning to their hometowns, paying respect to their ancestors, and sharing a feast. Many also wear traditional clothes called hanbok.
So at school on Friday, we held a Hanbok Fashion Show so the kids could show off their gear…
It was a pretty big deal.
Monica, Louis, and Jeff--I start each morning with them, grateful that coffee was invented.
My little Charley, pretending to be...a bird?
Albert! Class clown is an understatement...
As you can see.
A few of my girls: Elsa, Ruby, Olivia, and Monica
Christina and Dustin...
Cooper! The wave in his hair is from a recent perm.
James, Cooper, and Albert, waiting to strut their stuff...
The usual suspects...
Ruby. She's so sweet.
Elsa. Sometimes she gets solemn.
Almost show time...
Now that's a red carpet.
Happy Chuseok everyone!
