>Today the Beans and Lil Kinz had an awesome outing. Butterbean’s school had a Bazaar. This is one of the many new initiatives undertaken by the new director of the school. About 2 weeks ago, parents were invited to come and help the kids make little items to be sold at the Bazaar. El 3atal and I went and had fun making a snowman, a Christmas tree (turned into a snow globe), and a Christmas card. Today, they sold the items at a booth at the bazaar. It was open for folks to rent tables and sell their wares. It was a great collection of Christmas-sy products mixed with other things of interest. They also had a kid’s area where there was face painting and a bouncy castle thing.
Unlike the Halloween and Christmas “parties” we experienced last year, this one was not a silly DJ with overly loud music and very little fun. This was actually something kids could get into. In fact, my only complain is that the art teacher “fixed” some of the things we made a couple of weeks ago rendering our snowman and tree unrecognizable :(. I let ButterBean pick the one she thought was hers, but I’m not really sure it was… Very sad. On the other hand, ButterBean said to me as we were leaving, “Mom, this has been an awesome day.” So, Kudos, Miss Mirna. Keep up the great work.
