International Women's Day

This is a big holiday in this part of the world. A bit like Mother's Day in the US, but much more of everything. There are flowers all over the city and most of the children were taking flowers to school this morning. We even get the day off tomorrow. We went to a program yesterday for IWD at the children's center where the boys have their art and chess classes.

March has lots of holidays here. There's also Nooruz on the 21st and the 24th is now Revolution Day. I'm hoping for another day off.
