|Eugene visits Bilingual Montessori School in White Rock|
That opportunity happened on my 77th birthday on November 17th and we all had a grand time. The kids sang "Happy Birthday" to me in both Spanish and English. I then sang pieces from three Spanish songs I still remembered as taught by a school chum almost 60 years ago when first in college. ("Solamente una vez", "Anai", "Granada") Then the kids sang "Itsy Bitsy Spider", "Twinkle twinkle little star", and "Row, row, row your boat." A teacher from Argentina (far right in photo) sang a Hebrew song. Another teacher from Brazil (far left in photo) sang a Portuguese song. And still another teacher (out of sight) sang a Hawaiian song while swaying and describing the song's images with her fingers.
