Sock Hop

School is having "Support Staff Appreciation" this week. Since our support staff "rocks", the school celebrated by having a 50's day with a Sock Hop at the end of the day.

Forgetting that Nathan sometimes needs special attention and explanations, we didn't think to tell him all about a Sock Hop. We knew what it was so go and have fun. He had a REALLY rough morning and didn't want to go to school. He thought this would be something like the talent show where you have to perform a certain act in front of the whole school and he was not prepared. He was beyond explaining to this morning so we told him to behave and tell his teacher (without crying) that he just wanted to watch and not dance. Sean happened to see his para (God bless the support staff) and told her what was up. She took him around by his brother to sit and watch. Once he saw what goes on, he decided to get up and dance.

We got a Happy Gram letting us know that he danced and danced and danced. He was having so much fun he didn't want to stop. Everyone is very proud of him for keeping his emotions in control today and trying a new experience out.

Andrew wanted to put gel in his hair and have a flip. Sean decided he needed a tattoo so they used Sharpies on him to create a heart with MOM on it. Andrew said once the kids saw his 'tattoo', they all started trying to do their own during art class. He's a real trendsetter.
