We progressed with learning our songs for the International Festival and learned our lines for the show. I have to say the students ROCKED the International Festival. A big shout out to Kathleen and Ashlie for getting the students ready with he songs, lines, and craft. Also, I want to recognize Yao An for volunteering her time to teach the students to sing in Chinese.
On a sad note: This was the last International Festival my favorite and only daughter will attend. She started out as a first grader running around the auditorium handing out programs to unsuspecting adults. She did this until she became a teen and it seemed had less energy for the running of the laps. She since has attended to see the cuteness and food. For the next four springs she will be located in Bowling Green, Ohio/BGSU. Appreciate your children when they are actually children because before you know it they will be teenagers waiting to go to university.
International Festival Guest Speakers:
Your children can now count to ten in 25 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Greek, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh, Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, Malay, Hindi).
In high school my football jersey was number 86. Why did I chose this number? This is a tough one!
Hint: The 60s TV show had a character named Hymie and the arch enemies belong to a crime organization name KAOS.
For those of you who are interested I played high school football with Phil Parker who went on the play for the Michigan State Spartans and has been the Defensive Coordinator for the Iowa Hawkeyes for the past ten years. Also for those of you who are familiar with car dealerships in Alliance I played ball with Wally Armour Jr. But Wally Sr. coached my brother (football) in the late 60s. I know people. Lol
