International Day

Ava had international day at school last week. The kids in kindergarten have been learning about kids in different parts of the world this quarter, so to wrap it up they all were asked to come to school dressed as a person from another country. Then during a special chapel service, they sang a song in Spanish and said a few things in different languages etc. to demonstrate what they’d learned.

I tried to get Ava to dress in her Ao Dai, but she’s never one to do things the easy way. She told me from the beginning that she wanted to be an “Indian Princess”. I knew there was no fighting her on this one, so I went off to try to find material that might pass for a sari. Here’s what we came up with:

I snapped that one in the car at a stop light on the way to school. We didn’t have time for pictures outside our house before school!

The next one was taken after the chapel stuff, so her clothes we starting to slip off a little:).

I think she’s ready to take Bollywood by storm!

    Awesome! I’m not sure what an Ao Dai is but if’s it’s like those other Asian looking outfits I give props to Ava for choosing something different! And who WOULDN’T want to walk around with jewels on your face?!

    Oh my gosh, Ava is so cute it brings tears to my eyes. You did a great job making the sari and fixing her all up. Brings back memories of me doing the same for you. You always looked beautiful too. Sorry Angie but you never won. Inside joke
