Today was a big day for my heart!
2 years ago Jake started surfing with his school, well his class went I should say, his anxiety never even let him think about laying down on a board much less stand up. I was there cause that year my teaching schedule allowed and hoped he would just try...no go.
Last year I busted it to make it to surfing, my class schedule made it tight though, and I missed it, the first time he ever got on a board, him getting over his anxiety and trying!! And I missed it, every time last year I missed it.
I had been waiting, WAITING for this day, the first day of surfing for the year!! And he did it he got on a board, and he didn't just do it once he got on 3 times!!! I was there I got to see it!! And the last time he stood up!! And I got to be there when he ran over to me with the most amazing look of pride on his face to give me a high five!!! I was there!!! I didn't have to miss it. Today for me, for Jake, for this moment it made all the hard to work of the last year worth it. So I could work from home, and make my own schedule!! All the late nights, and early mornings, so I could be there for that high 5!! The best high 5 ever!!! The high 5 that kicks off all the high fives I will be there for now, all the high 5s I won't miss!!
Our lunch ended up being very brown today but that's ok... yesterday I said I wasn't going to post them on my profile but I figured why not... I like remembering these fun lunches! For all of you wondering I spent about $35 on cutters to make these cute sandwiches and cut fruit/cheese. Today we have chick peas, almonds, dried cranberries, pear, pb&j and bear cookies. #food#planetbox#toddler#vpk#florida#foodporn#bento#schoollunch
