Happy Year of the Monkey!

We kicked off the start of Chinese New Year yesterday with a visit to Josie's classroom.
 Her best friend Kaden is also adopted from China and his talented mom and I had fun sharing this special holiday with their classmates.
We used bubble wrap for firecrackers and I think Josie's teacher had just as much fun making noise as his students.
 We also passed out red envelopes filled with chocolate gold coins and Kaden's mom came up with a neat crafting activity where the kids could make a paper monkey and attach it to their paper lantern.
A fun time was had by all.  
Wishing you good health, good luck and much happiness throughout the year.

Josie is looking so grown-up! You are such a good mom to go do this every year with her classes. I don't know that I'd have the patience!!
