This morning was beautiful. A couple of weeks ago, I received an invitation to Issa's school's volunteer appreciate breakfast. Issa was so excited I was invited. I thought it was a nice gesture, but to be honest I also felt like it was one more thing on my plate. I envisioned the same veggie donuts we have at the other breakfasts, and I was not too excited. But...I checked yes on the form and headed in this morning.
When I dropped Issa off at her classroom, the whole class was buzzing about the breakfast. They were very excited about a special surprise they had created, and I got a very sweet first grade version of "hip hip hooray," that was one of the cutest out-of-unison things I've seen in a while.
When I walked into the library, I was greeted by placemats the kids had created in art class and a beautiful breakfast prepared by the staff. There were breakfast casseroles, muffins, fruit, and coffee. The principal made a nice thank you speech, and then the highlight: the school video.
The media specialist had each class who had a volunteer at the breakfast record a little message. They were hysterical. There were class unisons of a simple, "Thank you!" a fifth grade class cheer, and Issa's class rewrote "The Adam's Family Theme" to say thank you. It was too cute. Issa was in the front row just dancing and snapping away.
It was a great way to start the morning, and I am certainly feeling very appreciated. Have I mentioned I love this school?
