Today was the morning class end of year parent tea. Let me tell you, I have been to a lot of parent teas. A. LOT. I always appreciate the effort teaching staff put into the planning and implementing of these special events. Their heart and souls are put into them along with their creative genius. Today's tea was a little extra special. It wasn't special because my boy stood up from his wheelchair and not only became verbal but sang an aria. That didn't happen. It wasn't special because children with limited mobility participated in a jazz band while the others did the jitterbug. Neither of those happened. What occurred was unexplainably touching. It was new, it incorporated all the kids, it told a story of their typical morning at school. It also had lovely music and maybe that is what did me in but it really was lovely and I whole heartedly enjoyed it as did all the other parents.
Perhaps words and these pictures don't do it justice but trust me....it was great!
