Gregory holds the earth and chooses a friend to be the sun. He chose his best friend Gavin, the little boy in the red shirt. As he walks around the sun the children sing "the earth goes round the sun sha la the earth goes round the sun" then they say in 20?? you were ?. You can see it on the white board behind him.
But at the end of it they still had the traditional singing of happy birthday not forget the cha cha chas.
Smiley loves the cha cha cha part.
Then the children are allowed to have a snack or whatever. Different parents bring in all sorts of things from pizza to apples to ice cream Gregory wanted cupcakes. This is where our cupcake incident comes in. As I was unloading the babies from the car I had the cupcakes on a bag sitting by the trunk. Smiley got himself out while I was getting Faith buckled in to the stroller. He wanted to help and picked up the bag of cupcakes only to drop them all over the parking lot! I could not save any they were all ruined. I was upset. And it was 2:15 there is only 30 minutes left of school. Now I have my son inside waiting for his birthday celebration and no special treat. I quickly through the babies in the car and
And the teacher loved how much less of a mess they are than cupcakes. Well less of a mess for everyone but Faith.
But she is so cute we let her get away with anything.
It is not really Gregory's birthday. His birthday is not until July, he is our firecracker child. But since school is ending this week he had his school birthday party now. I am glad he gets to celebrate with all his friends. His brother and sister love going to his school. We will be shortly getting ready to go back today to have a picnic with the boys. The babies can't wait. Although Smiley was disappointed when he did not get to ride the van with them this morning.
Happy early birthday Gregory!!! Happy celebration of life ;) !!! You are a celebration and will always be.
