International Day

This International Week at ISB's elementary school, when the students celebrate their diverse backgrounds and countries of origins.  During the week, they were allowed to wear t-shirts that represented their homeland, and today (Friday) they are encouraged to wear their countries traditional costumes and outfits.  International Week was originally scheduled in November, but had to be moved back due to the flooding in Thailand.

Nalin and Aleena decided to wear traditional Thai outfits.  Aleena would bemoan the fact that there are not really American costumes, dismissing the cowboy motif.

The day starts off with a parade from the sports fields to the Chevron theater, where they have a student assembly. There are a lot of parents along the parade route, taking photos and waiving at the children.  After the assembly, the students return to their classrooms, where parents have setup stations to teach the kids about different countries culture.

Last year I went and took some photos at the parade, but this year I decided to sit it out.  Instead, I had the girls pose for some photos in my "studio" before they went to school.
