Two weeks ago Emma' school had field day. It was a cool, sunny day and everyone had a really good day. It was a great day in Emma's book for sure. I will admit field day is not my favorite day of the school year. You take a physically challenged child and a day full of physical activity and things normally do not go well. Last year Emma wore herself out and left at lunch after a bad fall. But this year she was a trooper. She sat out a few activities that involved jumping etc, but for the most part she was part of the class and had fun. Her class was the sweetest class. They always included her and helped her along. No one was rude or hurtful and I love that about this class. They all encouraged each other and just had fun. Taylor attended with Daniel and myself and ended up just becoming one of the class. He loved getting to be apart of all the fun!! He thinks he is in second grade:)
Here is a glimpse into our fun day!

I really dont know why she sticks her tongue out when she is working hard:) Must get that from her daddy
They had a long lunch break and got to enjoy some down time on the school's laptop

friends make the world go round
my favorite part of the day, was when this sweet friend stayed at the top of the bouncy to help Emma get up and to yell at anyone who tried to come near her. She did it all four times Emma went. My heart was so full. She has been a good friend all year to Emma. Emma talked about getting to do the bouncy course for days. She normally gets scared of bigger kids and doesnt do it at school. This was her favorite part of the day.
I love Emma's school and am so thankful for such a loving supportive place.
