Practice for Chinese New Year

We attended the first practice for the little ones to sing and dance to the song "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" in Chinese. AA did very well. Everyone is to learn the Chinese words to the song (which include twinkling eyes rather than like a diamond in the sky).
Here's the words that you can read and hear being spoken; and our instructor's homemade YouTube video with the arm movements.

Kids of all ages were there to practice their Chinese routine:

We moved to a different corner of the gym and continued our "dancing" to Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star!

Hope AA doesn't get stage fright - this is her first time "performing"!

How exciting! We are so thankful to be home with Maire...finally! I only wish our community offered more for her and her culture. We hope to be over the jet lag in order to celebrate the New Year with her! Thank you for all of your support!
