A couple of weeks ago, we dropped by the Alta Vista Adult Education Center for their International Day. A lady who helps babysit Jaxon during Friday Ladies' Bible Class goes to the center for ESL lessons, and invited us to the event.
The Abilene Reporter News has the event covered HERE
Once we found our way to where the festivities were held, the whole place was already bustling with students from >30 different countries.
We made our way into the gym ( I'm guessing that's what the building was ), where there were exhibitions from the different nations and a caligraphy demonstration from our friend, Xia Yu.
There was a table laid out with food brought by the students, which was very interesting. Some of them resembled food from Malaysia, and so that was quite a pleasant surprise.
The students were dressed in very colorful garb and presented dances from their respective countries.
The little boy was pretty oblivious of all the hullabaloo as he had found himself a sandy area on the playground and was happily pouring and mixing and play play playing. :)
