Camai Dance Festival: Ruby's First Yupik Dance



Ruby with her classmates waiting to be called on stage for the Camai Festival.  I could not resist taking lots of pictures and getting in the way of the teachers.  The kids just looked like candy.
Ruby's little friend Ana in a very pretty beaded head dress, and very cute Kuspuk. 
Ruby's little friend Isabel center in a pretty fur head dress. 
For Ruby's first dance, our next door neighbor let Ruby borrow her very special first dance Kuspuk.  Ruby is quite the Yupik dancer, she put in a lot of effort, we are so proud of her.  This is one of Ruby's little classmates.  She is very cute.

Muktuk Jello

Looks just like whale skin and blubber, almost to the point that I could not eat it. I continue to be obsessed with layered jello, we used greek yogurt for the flesh looking center. It tasted good. Really.
Eddy wants a bite. He is really liking new foods. No, I did not feed him jello. Well maybe a little speck.

Oh Yah, Greg decided to trim Eddy's hair. He feels like a whole new baby, and I hope he grows up rebelling the short hair cuts.

A Closer Look-Bethel Roller Derby

 Lots of smiles. This is the first drill where we are getting comfortable with skating in a pack.  Leah (The Violet Flame) strutting her muscles.
 Oh my- we are looking like an Army...pretty awesome. 
 Kathy and Angela (or should I say "Glare Ice")  taking a break between drills. 
 Drills.  Hopping over lines.  We are starting to get the skating down.

It's Cold We Should Stay Inside and Skate

 We are babysitting for Lady and she took off on us.  We were running through the neighborhood in our pajamas yelling for her. 

 The kids use my skates like a skateboard.  I do have rather big feet.  However they now have their own pair to rollerskate around in.  People would tell us that our house is set up like a roller rink, with the long wood floors.  It actually does make a good roller skating rink.
