Last Thursday we closed out Session III: Daring Dragons Summer Camp with a fantastic parade! We marched around the courtyard doing a dance with the dragon we made on poles. All in celebration of the year of The Dragon - considered the luckiest of the Chinese lunar years. We sure felt lucky, it was a beautiful day and the children enjoyed showing off their handmade lantern creations.
