All Hail the Queen



May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii
Garlands of Flowers everywhere
All the colors in the rainbow
Maidens with blossoms in their hair.

Sydney and King Miles, wait to enter the May Day Celebration.


The King and Queen enter,



Parade around,


Bow to the people,


and sit to review all the performers.


The Royal Court performs Kawika



John is a little Myna Bird



Sassy Little Myna Bird!


Shoo!



Emily performs Pearly Shells



Shining in the Sun


My heart tells me that I love you, more than all the little pearly shells!


Each grade level performs a dance. Even the teachers dance! The ladies perform Milolii,


and the gentelmen perform Kuu Hoa.


Sydney performs the last hula of the day, Kawaipunahele.





Sydney - Noi Ka Oi

(Sydney's the Best!)


Sydney said she was so nervous her leg was twitching.


She is a lovely dancer!


All Hail the King and Queen of May Day!

Way to go Syd! And John and Em too (cuties!)! That really looks like a fun day at their school and I think it's cool that all the classes do some dancing as part of their learning.

Sydney looks so pretty in her white dress. I'm glad she got to be queen for a day!

Wendy, the kids all look so cute! I love John's expression while he is dancing! Sydney looks fantastic, and David said she did a great job, I am not surprised one bit! I'm glad you were able to see them and share in such a special day.
