Fiestas Patrias II

The school celebrations for Chile’s birthday are impressive. Everyone dresses up. The elementary kids learn a new dance each year, as well as a song and a poem.

I felt a little sad that my older boys didn’t participate this year — they are growing up, and dancing “La Cueca” becomes optional at their age. Thomas was adorable, but parents weren’t invited to the preschool celebration, so all I have is a quick iPhone shot. Have I said it already? Favorite time of year in Chile — something we will always remember.
