Chinese New Year

We are looking forward to experiencing our first Chinese New Year next week. The elementary school had two assemblies and Benjamin participated in the primary grade assembly. The kids also made Chinese lanterns, wore traditional Chinese clothing -- Benjamin stuck with his red sweats since red is the color for Chinese New Year. It is fun to see the city decorated for this important holiday. We are looking forward to a week off from school.

Benjamin, you did a great job at your Chinese New Year Assembly. I especially liked the last song. It looked like you were doing Taichi. Molly, did you have a special celebration at your school, too.
Love, Alison

Hello Kris and Michael and kids!
I have been following your blog and have been fascinated with all that you have been able to experience already...things that will never be forgotten. I enjoy living vicariously through you and seeing a bit of Chinese culture.
Take care all of you!
