Nathan goes to a pretty elaborate daycare center, for which we pay a pretty penny. He is always bringing home cool artwork, and every day I get a report card of their extremely varied activities, which include studying a different country each week all summer. They always have cool special visitors too, such as a petting zoo and pony rides onsite.
Last night was a family picnic at the school. I thought it would be nice to meet some other parents, so I signed us up to go and bring a bottle of soda. I got there and quickly realized we forgot a blanket or folding chairs to sit on. Lots of other parents did too. The food was kid friendly and nothing special. I met a super nice Indian couple whose beautiful daughter, Jasmin, is in Nathan's class. Hemang and Anita. I really like them and wish there were some way to get to know them better. And their daughter apparently really liked me too. Anita and I shared stories about how our kids never seem to eat anything at school but eat lots of food at home. I think they are too busy watching each other to eat.
The best part about this picnic was the entertainment. I knew there was going to be some children's music, but I had no idea it would be a cool rock band. Penny and the Pinecone People. The kids loved them and so did I! Nathan busted a move and everyone started laughing. He is a bigtime dancer and hysterical to watch. I'll try to get a video and show you.
