I’ve written about our magical playgroup before (here and here and here and here), so you understand how much I love this group of kids and their parents. I’ve also written about Novruz before (Here and here and here and here and here), so you understand how much I love this holiday.
Obviously, we took a lot of photos.
We started with eggs. It was much less frantic than last year. Partly because it was nice enough to dye outside, so I wasn’t as worried about spills. I still felt like I had to keep a careful eye on Harriet. She wanted all the eggs.
Next, we went out to start the fire and do some jumping. Jesse and Anthony (and Aster) were our fire-masters and got a good fire going. We need to remember marshmallows next year!
When the fire had died down a little bit, we got to the jumping going. It’s fun to see the kids get into this. I also love how we can get a whole group of people saying Ağırlıgım- uğurluğum bu odda qalsın! It’s so great to share a bit of Azerbaijan and our time in the Peace Corps with our friends. Hello Peace Corps third goal!
Next came the egg cracking game. I’m pretty sure Hannah won this year. Is that right? You can see her below studying the strategy so she could swoop in and win it all.
