4 full days in American Samoa to go. Enjoy these pictures that sum up everything I've done and experienced in the past week.
Parents, family, cousins, and friends attend. You can "walk" with a date, meaning your name and your date's name will be announced and you will meet each other in the middle of a stage, trade flowers/ula's (lei's), and then the boy will escort the girl off the stage. Dad's escorted daughters, cousins escorted cousins, boy's escorted their baby sisters....it's all very different here. After all this, they dance to songs like the Cupid Shuffle while the parents watch (or dance) and then they go home!
There was A LOT of satin but everyone looked great!
The NHS students helped out and they got all wet because the weather was terrible - so rainy and windy!
One of my best friends : )
This little guy's name is Quinn!
The palagi teachers all spiffied up!
My last day with 1st Period
Myself and who Amber and I call "The Triplets." These three are inseparable.
A teary goodbye with my fifth period
I'm really gonna miss this one.
I've gotten so many hugs and Samoans happen to be very good huggers!
The seniors got awesome t-shirts and lavalavas for senior week
Some of my Snow Boyz
Tired after a rugby game
At the Senior Baccalaureate on Sunday - they looked so beautiful and handsome in their uniforms!
The three of us after Baccalaureate
Fabric in Tutuila Store - it's a bit overwhelming...
Abby and I raced down the hill one night to catch this gorgeous sunset in the Leone Bay.
Came home from school one day to find the most vivid double rainbow right over our house. Lucky us!
Moments like these will stay with me forever...
Memorial Day was spent at the beach in Fatu Ma Futi. We swam in the water but the current was so strong that we kept getting swept down the beach! Ha.
Holding on to a rock so I wouldn't get swept away.
It was a a perfect day in AmSam.
