Learning about Diversity



We live in a state with a very diverse population. Really, it's one of the things I love most about California. My kids go to school and realize there are all kinds of people who speak different languages, have different beliefs or have a different color of skin.

Just look at this wall I saw today at Back to School Night, filled with little self-portraits of culturally diverse children, all in Ian's new second grade class. How beautiful!





Only, I'm not sure what race Ian thinks he belongs to.

Yeah, one thing I wish Utah had more of was ethnic diversity. Sigh....at least my kids have their brown grandpa & aunties.

That is hilarious. And I LOVED growing up in California for that very reason. Race just wasn't an issue.

That is totally cute. I have to say that I think my little area of Daybreak is fairly diverse. I have Joren in a joyschool. We have a mom that is German, a mom that is French, a Hispanic family and a family where both parents went to Japan on their missions so they are teaching their daughter japanese. It's crazy.
