Have I mentioned that on July 29th we celebrated our second anniversary of moving to Colombia? Life has been so busy and now seems so normal that none of us even remembered to acknowledge this day. Colombia is where we live now (although we constantly discuss when we will be going back. But that is for a different blog post.)
We just participated in our third annual Dia de la Familia (family day) at Siena’s Waldorf School. It’s an annual event, planned and executed primarily by the parents to celebrate community, have fun and raise much needed funds for the school. This year’s theme was based on what the primary focus is on in each grade (classic fairy tales in preschool through 2nd grade, myths and legends in 3rd and 4th, Greek and Roman studies in 5th and 6th, etc.)
The whole community really got into it, decorating booths to look like the theme and dressing up in costumes. Since Siena is in 2nd grade, our theme was fairy tales. We decorated a Hansel and Gretel type “house of sweets”, sold sweets of all kinds and dressed up as characters from various fairy tales. For our family this meant that my husband was a king, I was a queen and the girls were princesses. It was all in good fun….
