Children's Day

May 5 is Children's Day in Korea and it's a highly celebrated holiday. Children's Day mens a much needed day off work for me (yay!) and lots of fun activities for the kids who work SO hard all the time. This Sunday was Parents Day ( a combination of Mothers and Fathers Day) and today is Buddha's Birthday. So, this lucky girl had Thursday, Monday and Tuesday off work-yay!
The day before Children's Day the school had a fun Childrens Festival at a nearby park for all of our kinders. We played games, had races, ate pizza and painted faces. It was warm and a perfect day for an outdoor festival. Here are some pictures from the day!

Sweet Jun

Erin being silly

Andy is always making this face, dancing, or a combination of both

Sweet, sweet Erin

Getting ready for the relay race. The kids had to walk with an egg in a spoon, put the egg in a bowl, eat a cookie off a plate without using their hands, then run back.

Getting their legs tied together for the three legged race. Love Angela's face in this one- it's her signature look!

Angela- you have to love how appropriately dressed she is for outdoor play in her princess dress!

Angela again

Jun was saying "rock a bye baby Teacher" and this is what he meant. He wanted me to lift him up so he could look for Easter Eggs easily. :)

This is the face Andy makes a lot when I talk to him. :)

Daniel and his Charlie Chaplin face paint

Brian, not too excited about his face paint
