Songkran Celebration in Aly's School

Aly was chosen by her teachers to represent their class in the Songkran celebration last Friday.  I made sure that all my chores were finished in the morning so I can swing by the school after lunch to give my girl some moral support.

Both of them represented the Grade 2 class in the water pouring ceremony, where they poured water on their teachers' hands as a sign of respect.

That's my girl!

So proud of you, babe!

After the water ceremony, the students lined up on stage to tie a piece of string on the teacher's wrist, which symbolizes giving good wishes to the recipient.

Aly got one too!

From the auditorium, the students changed into their colorful Songkran shirts and headed to the gym for the games.

That was my cue to leave.  Aly didn't want me to stay so I hung out at Starbucks across the street until it was time to pick her up.

Caramel frap with no whipped cream.  Bawal kasi sa diet, but what they hey.  Wala na lang whipped cream (my favorite part) so I won't feel too guilty.  Haha!
