Moving up exercise

Kiddos are excited about their moving up exercise! They’ve been practicing for a week and so happy that Daddy is here to witness the event. Ethan just finished kinder 1 and will be moving up to prep (kinder 2) and Kaya, from nursery to Kinder 1.  This kind of ceremony is a big deal in the Philippines — this one lasted for 6 hours 🙂 It seems that the school gives out medals for all subjects.  One kid we saw with 7 medals on her neck.  Unbelievable!

Since they have attended school only for the last quarter, they were not able to get a medal, but nonetheless happy for the experience.  We were pleasantly surprised that they got bar pins — Ethan for “most perseverant” and Aya for “most obedient”.  To see them proudly wearing their graduation togas is priceless!
