Meskel Celebration at ICS

One of the major holidays in Ethiopia is the celebration of Meskel. At the International Community School (ICS), every year the kids dress up in traditional Ethiopian attire and celebrate the religious holiday which is also the end of the rainy season. This year the 3rd grade students presented a play depicting the Ethiopian story of finding the true cross. Eli was a "chief" and dressed up in the beautiful, red robe. Sophi and Glori were ofcourse, Ethiopian princesses in their yellow dresses. Here are some fun pictures of traditional Ethiopian clothing at the school. Enjoy!

Marti's B-Day!

What a fun day I had! First, I woke up like any other day and got the kids off to school. Then I went for a run. Then my friends picked me up and surprised me with a birthday pedicure and lunch at the local Korean Restaurant. Hmmmm, it was good! Thanks gals for such a great, girl's day out! It was much needed. Then the kids and I celebrated at home with a cake Mitch made before I woke up in the morning. It was very cute. Thanks Honey! I had a nice 36th!
