This is what Noodles school does for the children's birthday. You can't really tell but on the ground is an orange candle it represents the sun. The children put around it the four seasons and the 12 months of the year. Then the birthday child walks around the sun and for each year he makes someone reads a story about his life in that year beginning from birth. So I read about when he was just a baby all the way to all about Noodle in his 4th year. They sang a great song about enjoying their time with him and good wishes for the future. It was very touching and I only cried a little but I thought this was a great way to celebrate the kids' birthdays and still teach them the reality of a birthday.
They also invited several other vendors and below are some pictures of Noodle and his friends Pip and Popeye checking out the butterfly garden. The children learn all about the life cycle of the butterfly at school and just loved holding them and how beautiful they looked in person.

This is monkey and one of his best friends Pip. He comes home to tell me that Pip hurt his feelings because they were going to share a promise but she was running away from him when he tried to tell her. They were supposed to play together during play time. They were supposed to play together today like they did yesterday but Pip was playing with two other boys instead, Monkey was hurt. I love that this is the worst thing that happens to my son in a day. Oh to be a child when "my friend didn't play with me" was our biggest worry. And don't worry as fast has he was "hurt" he is again fine and thinking his Pip and her brother Popeye are the best friends a kid could have. - For issues to be resolved so easily, dismissed so quickly. If only our adult lives could be a simple as a child's.

So at first I hated the idea of having to pack the lunch every day. I however have given into the dark side and am enjoying the fun I am having with the lunch. It helps that I got him the best lunch box care of Pearl Potato. It is a lap top lunch system. (secretly I love it so much I am going to get a Bento Box for my own lunches....) Don't worry it is phthalate and lead free!! So below is the lunch for Thursday taken with my totally awesome new camera care of Mohawk Papa...
Yes we are having popcorn and cheddar bunnies, grapes, ham-turkey-cheese moon shaped sandwiches and carrots and ranch. The other mom says put in lots of colors and she is right doesn't it look great? Sadly we are so involved with our children we are even having themed days of the week such as Wacky Wednesdays when the kids get breakfast for lunch and the other momma even thought about Foreign Friday for a little added culture.. sounds like a plan to me. We are however taking suggestions for a theme for Thursday neither of us could come up with a good alliteration.
