Today, the kids at school had a Cinco de Mayo celebration (yes, everyone is clear it is the 6th, but they needed time to prepare). The kids made pinatas, the maestras filled them, and then today they had their big bash - potluck, pinata breaking, etc.
So Amado came home with his bag of goodies, which included raisins, cacahuates, and 4 jelly beans. Amado has had no prior experience with jelly beans. He is all excited, telling me about his day, telling me all about the party, how hard he hit the pinata, and then he shows me his goodies.
