family of 5 moves from arizona to belo horizonte brasil, and lives to tell about it
Monday, July 1, 2013
June is over, and so are most of the Festa Junina parties. I've bloggedaboutthem before. They are a big part of the culture, and a part of every school's calendar. The party is a big deal at Maple Bear, and families tend to spend a lot of money on outfits, especially for the girls. This is VERY different from the artsy-fartsy school we went to, where the children made their own costumes. Since I'm a cheap "make it yourself" kind of person, I opted to create Beatrice and Sebastian's outfits.
