Although my children dread often protest going to Lithuanian school on Saturdays, last week was an exception. I had the pleasure of going with Gaigai's 3rd grade class to the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture in Chicago.
Gaigai's mask - kind of looks like Jack Sparrow:)
Each year the museum puts together a fun program for the kids about Lithuanian's version of Mardi Gras or "Užgavėnės." After a tour of the museum, the children made their own masks and then danced and sang with them in hopes of making winter go away. The program ended with apple pancakes for lunch. You guessed right - no complaining from Gaigai:).
