As usual, the entertainment started off with a batucada getting us into the party spirit. And this year, the batucada included one of the BFIS teachers which was a bonus. It was fun seeing a different side of her that was outside of school!!
The batucada - probably one of my favorite things about living in Barcelona!
Ms. Chloe is standing on the right with the big drum!

Liam's class were dressed as Ancient Egyptians as they have just spent the last several weeks studying Ancient Egypt. Liam, who is the family entertainer, still hasn't seemed to find his comfort zone when surrounded by a crowd and looks a little lost in this video.

So proud that Aidan's class is doing this - such fun!!
Racing to the finish!

And just for fun, I'm throwing in the 5th grade performance in case you are curious. They did a performance to What Does the Fox Say? Somehow Josh has never heard this song before Carnaval - he obviously has not been living in our house for the last several months!! Either that or he's tuned it out! http://youtu.be/glPm4y9SFys
All in all a fun day with the kids. Once again though, I'm saddened by the fact that next year it's unlikely we'll be here at BFIS and we will miss all these wonderful performances and events that the school puts on that truly makes you feel like a part of the community. Until then though, we will enjoy each and every one of them and look forward to my favorite, Sant Jordi, coming up in April!
