Today, Sally's family came to share stories with the class as part of our Family Traditions Months. They brought a panel of photos and told stories about a recent to trip to Guatemala, where Sally's father was born. Sally told her friends about the special places in the photos, and amazing things she saw during her trip. These included a beautiful parrot, a merry-go-round, a trolley train, and most exciting an active volcano! Sally described seeing the volcano a lot, even while she was swimming in the pool. We learned that Antigua, where they visited over the Thanksgiving holiday, is surrounded by three volcanos. One of them, Fuego, is active and you could see smoke and steam rising from its mouth.
Sally also showed us a photo of the church where her parents got married, and photos of relatives who live in Guatemala. We learned that Guatemala is a country where people speak Spanish and there are rain forests; and, because of its warm climate, Guatemala is often referred to as "the land of eternal spring."
