|Looking beautiful for the special day.|
On Friday,we had a preschool feast!! We were going to host the Ulu, but He is currently in Samoa so we couldn't but we went ahead anyway. We had some very special guests come, The Minister, The Dr The principal of the school and Elders. We all had to bring some food to share on traditional woven plates, Rainy and I made pancakes. Everyone was to dress formally and we had lots of dancing and singing as you would at a real village Kaiga. One of the songs we did you had to choose one boy and one girl and they had to stand and dance for the next couple of minutes and then someone else was chosen. Mostly this was the children, However both the principal and the Dr had to join in...I was waiting pretty sure my turn was coming and sure enough, boy- one of the preschoolers , girl-Christy (what everyone calls me here, so me and my little buddy had to stand up and dance, I think by all the laughter we entertained them well, I know I was bright red, but it was fun to be a part such a fun celebration.
