Next, we have to prepare for the Parade of flags. There are 27 different nations represented as SIS. Each student comes up to the stage with their country.
The third part of the program is the dance portion. I took video and pictures of all the performances. I can not do it justice with a description. Just enjoy the videos. When I was watching the dancing numbers, I started to realize how lucky I was to see this. How this is exactly what I wanted. I started to feel the happy tears well up in my eyes. I do complain about Surabaya and some days I am very homesick. But, I am so grateful for this experience and feel like this was exactly what I needed and wanted. I am seeing such a different part of the world and life. I truly feel like my life is becoming richer. :)
The finale of the program was the kids singing together. The song was cover the world with love and that was when I realized I was getting old. Because I was so proud of those little guys that the tears welled up again and I cried my little eyes out. I guess I am my father's child.
Miss you all! See you at Christmas!
