Celebrating Peru!

Two of the cutest kids there!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today we celebrated Peru’s Independence day! I have heard that celebrating can last for a week to a week and a half. We will see how lucky we are! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Our kids have been very busy preparing for this day, putting in lots of after school hours to practice with the band. ย I know I am a little biased, but our Diospi kids looked awesome! Great marching, band playing, and outfits!

Ben and his drum

Benjamin played the drum and was quite proud of himself for being able to flip his drum stick while not missing a beat. He figured that out during one of the 2 hour practice sessions. ๐Ÿ™‚ They had 6 of those sessions in the past 2 weeks.

Syd and her lita

Sydney played the lita which is like a xylophone. During practice they had to hold the lita up against their side, but today the first 3 girls to arrive got a strap to help hold it! ย She was so happy!

The lita girls

Sydney and Annie both played the lita which made it a lot easier to get Syd out the door to practice. So thankful for Annie’s friendship with Sydney!

This is the band in the background with a few of the Diospi students marching in the front. It was kind of hard to get pictures because there were so many people.

Here are a few pics. Lucky for us, we were one of the first schools to march, so there wasn’t TOO much waiting once things started rolling. However, the kids had to be at the meeting place at 8:00 and didn’t march until around 11:00. So there was a bit of waiting. ๐Ÿ™‚

The little Diospi kids marching, they are so cute!

I wanted to put a video on here so you could hear them playing, but I can’t get it to participate at this time. ๐Ÿ™‚
