I love how this specific school district didn't have any bouncy houses for field day. Don't get me wrong, bouncy houses are fun and all, but sometimes these kids need more than just a bouncy house to learn and have fun. Tug of war, and games like toss the frisbee, adding in a bit of basketball, and soccer are games that encourage these kids to involve themselves in a sport. The kids rotated playing these games for two hours, and it was a whole lot of fun. I recorded a few moments on my Insta stories, and managed to capture one shot of him tugging on the rope. He had a lot of fun playing tug of war, and the look on his face proves that he was having a blast!
Noah's music class this year has been "oceans of fun" as all the first grade classes were part of a mini musical called 'Go Fish.' I really loved the whole meaning behind it. This show was special because it reminds us to embrace our uniqueness, and to be who we are. Just like there are various fish in the ocean, so are we. We may all be of a different race, and color, but at the end of the day we are who we are, and we are not that different. I love the message behind the production. Noah had a fun time singing, and dancing in the show. You can catch a snippet of it here. Watching Noah sing, and dance brought back memories of when he had his kindergarten show last year. Bittersweetness all the way!
And like this fish, he truly is special, and unique in his own way!
"No two friends are ever the same.
Each is special, it's true.
You have something that makes you shine
There inside of you that comes through.
The colors of the sea run together so naturally
The colors of the sea show the beauty in you.
And the beauty in me.
Show the beauty in you,
And the beauty in me."
Love you Noah!
