Parents, Grandparents, Relatives

Part of life is the daily challenge of wanting to not miss a thing, but the reality is, we miss a lot. Today, I’ll be returning from a California trip and will be home well past our son’s International Day Parade. Cheryl will capture the singing and dancing on video. Meanwhile, imagine the vision – elementary school children, led by wonderfully smart, nurturing and creative teachers, singing and dancing to their featured dance, Shakia’s Waka Waka, from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Africa (217mil views can’t be wrong).

As parents, grandparents, and relatives of children passing through milestone stages, we hate to miss these exciting events. And then, all we need to do is remember our troops and others who sacrifice, for months, and sometimes years at a time, missing way more than we could ever bare.

The International Day Parade is the biggest Fall production at Chapin’s school. The school has a long history of involving the children (every last one of them) in musical and theatrical productions.

The planning, rehearsing, teamwork, and ultimately, the performing “on-stage”, all work to promote self-confidence, while teaching about them about the diverse world in which they live and contribute to.

PS. And their theme this semester is Africa.

Check out these military homecoming surprises. Our children sacrifice too. Good luck keeping a dry eye!
