FABULOUS FIELD DAY!




What a blast!

Jonathan's school had Field Day yesterday. Parent's were invited, so how could I miss watching my little guy in action? It was very organized with tons of fun games and festivities, including water balloon tosses, relay races and tug-a-war.

Jonathan participated in everything, happily and willingly. He was part of the team in every way. He listened intently to directions, and joyfully cheered his team on.

One of the best things I witnessed was a game that they needed to pair up with a friend. Several students tried to be Jonathan's partner! He was not left standing in the middle of the field without a friend. I can remember my childhood The time when once I was the last person picked for a team. Not fun! But Jonathan is loved and accepted and wanted.

Does a Mama's heart good to see with her very own eyes!

Participation was not an option in our grade school. You played, period. I experienced the worst of both being forced to participate in something I disliked but hearing the groans of the team members forced to take me. Not a big confidence builder. I think teachers see it coming and bless their hearts on this point, teaching them to see the best and find it in Jonathan.

Hey, he was a kick at praise team practice. Would he sit on my lap? He huggged me willingly, so....
