This week’s new was a lot of fun! We went to a new celebration… the celebration of the Chinese New Year, year of the Rabbit, at the Nelson-Atkins Art museum. They had all sorts of cultural activities and it was a perfect Friday night.
Robert got to make a Year of the Rabbit collage to bring love and luck in the new year.
He got to try out a Chinese Yo Yo.
There was a lot to explore.
They had traditional Chinese music.
Robert was too scared to watch the Lion Dance and it was very crowded. The decorations at the museum were incredible though.
We had a very good time. And yes, Robert wore his pirate hat the whole time and consulted his “Treasure Map” that one of the teachers at school made for him often.
The funniest part of the night was when we got into the elevator. The doors shut and Robert turned to us and said (with his hand on his hip), “OK boys, let’s do this!” I have no idea where he gets this stuff from sometimes.
