Owen: Cultural Attache

It's a big culture week here at our house. First, visiting China (see previous post), and now a mysterious assembly at school.

Owen came home yesterday and told me they had an assembly with music from another country. I had to ask a lot of questions to get an idea of what this was about. He could tell me it was people playing music. How many? Two. A man and a woman? Yes. Did they play instruments? Yes ( a drum, harp, and whistle were mentioned). Did they sing? Yes. And danced a little.

I'm still mystified until he says, "They came from a country where they dance with their arms straight down the sides of their bodies."

Ireland, perhaps?


I'm telling you, this kid definitely has a future in international relations.
