From Daddy: Yesterday was Robert’s first performance assembly at school for the Moon Festival! Ngen-Ngen and I attended.
Can you spot him?, September 13, 2013, 11:12 a.m.
The kindergartners sang three songs at the beginning of the assembly.

Then the rest of the elementary students performed for about forty minutes. (Robert yelled to me, “Daddy, I’m bored!” as he sat and waited.)
Afterward, class by class, the student paraded with their lanterns, and then the teachers paraded with lanterns with lit candles.

Afterward, the students got to eat a slice of moon cake! Robert’s teacher had previously e-mailed Mommy and I that the school got some moon cakes that were made without peanut oil. He’s always wanted to try one, and Mommy and I made sure that he knew that they would be nut-free.
So this was Robert’s very first moon cake. He gobbled it up!

When I asked him that evening what he thought of the moon cake, he exclaimed, “It had no peanuts and it was DELICIOUS!”
On Tuesday, Robert and I arrived at school a little earlier than usual so he got to join the calisthenics line before school.
