~Chinese New Year~

Derek's 2nd grade class celebrated the Chinese New Year with a week full of festivities ending with a parade on Friday.  Luckily, I was able to sneak in to celebrate with them, take some photos and videos, and also learn about some traditions and customs. 

Look who is peeking out on the right side!

Derek is 2nd in line with the red pants on.  You can see him peeking out on the side, again, if you look close.

Derek's teacher is the most wonderful, creative teacher I have ever met.  She not only educates, but makes it so exciting and full of adventure that the kids cannot help but learn while they are having fun.  I am pretty positive that when Derek is older, he will have numerous memories from this school year. 
It has been one to remember!

All of these Dragon's were in the display case at the front entrance of school.
Derek's symbol is the "MONKEY" for being born in 2004.
