a heart warming winter festival was celebrated tonight. So many beautiful lanterns. The look of wonder on the little class one and two's faces. The big class seven children held their little hands and lead them down the path.The path was lined both sides with parents and lanterns. The children were lead to the spiral. There was silence as we watched the little ones journey their way to the middle of the spiral. Once in the middle, their candles were lit by Mother Earth.
A wonderful fire twirling display was performed by class seven as the african drums echoed in the background. A beautiful farewell speech was made to a beloved and long standing kindy teacher, who also happens to be my friend - Amber. Thank you Amber, you were so beautiful as Mother Earth this year!
It is sad to think that this is my middle child Josh's last winter festival. He will be moving on to high school next year with his big brother. Thankfully, we still have little Grace to journey through. So, there will be many more years for our family to experience and celebrate festivals at Silkwood.
I counted and this year was our tenth winter festival.... i look forward to the next ten!
