On October 5th Noah's Preschool had a parade where the students could dress up as children from different parts of the world. There were many Hula Girls, Japanese Girls, German boys in their Lederhosen and Mexican Sombreros floating through the rooms. Noah decided he wanted to be an Indian. So, without the headdress, bow and arrows, he wore his little Indian outfit proudly for the day.
Noah is in the youngest class, so they were the first to start the parade through the halls as all the parents watched, cheered and clapped along with the music and instruments the children played while they marched. Above is his class. His teacher Mrs. Newton is facing Noah as she led them through the school. All the people along the walls were parents.
How cute is he? And those little chubby cheeks?
Macy, Noah's sweet friend, was not so sure about all the attention and noise, but was beautiful as always!
It was such a simple little parade for the kids, but it is amazing how much they love these "simple" things. It was obvious that to the children, this was a BIG day, and they felt important. Isn't that one of our jobs as parents, to make our young children feel special and important...like they are the coolest thing in the world? I think so. The world is so cruel, so keep them positive and build their self-esteem as long as we can and as soon as we can.
**please excuse the quality of the photos. These are littereally the only ones I got as I had a screaming baby in one hand and the camera in the other. The best part is, after the parade, Dean spit up all over the carpet, I dropped the camera, and that afternoon I came down with STEP THROAT...the beginnin of a VERY rough two weeks.
So I am thankful for the few shots I did get
