Nico and kindergarten pals

Nico's school had a Soul Food Dinner/Multicultural Night event tonight that was a lot of fun. It was a combined event that featured soul food dishes in the lunch room and cultural displays throughout the hallways.

The event drew a lot of families. Nico was delighted to see his kindergarten teacher there, along with some of his classmates.

Vic and I set up a booth that honored our cultural roots. Since it was the last day of the Lunar New Year celebration, I set up a display of red envelopes, along with some almond cookies and moon cakes. My mom also gave me an abacus and some artifacts from Taiwan to decorate the table. We also displayed an Italian flag and gave away coloring book pages from an Italian coloring book.

Nico had a great time hanging out with his kindergarten pals. I had fun too. One of the best things about Nico's school is that it is so rich in its cultural diversity and tonight's event highlighted that.
