May Day is a holiday in Hawaii to celebrate Hawaiian culture. The schools embrace this by having the kids learn a hula and elect a royal court. The Royal Court goes back to the Hawaiian monarchy and is a pretty big deal. So we were proud of Omar for being elected to kindergarten prince. (Even if it meant after school practices for WEEKS!)
So this proud mama was super excited to see what the kids had been up to!
I found Mckenna waiting for everything to start, as usual gossiping with her friends!
The rest of the court did the same thing, one pair from each grade representing an island. Then came the crown bearers for the King and Queen.
And finally the King and Queen
And of course I have Mckenna’s recorded for your viewing pleasure!
Then the Royal Court performed their own hula. Omar did so well!
And here is Omar showing off his lei that his princesses mom gave him (how sweet is she? I totally failed at parenting that day!) The volunteers did an AMAZING job decorating!
