A few weeks ago, we were asked to bring in coffee cans with handles. I mentioned this to my mom one day (because I don't drink that much coffee and I wasn't about to go out and BUY a huge tub just for that!) and she said, "Aren't you lucky? We just threw one away this morning. Here!" It was a blue Maxwell House tub. When we took it in to Miss Melissa, I noticed that almost everyone else had brought in red Folgers tubs, but I know it wouldn't matter, b/c they weren't going to be using ALL of the tubs--there were a TON! But apparently, my super observant, O.C.D. child noticed that HE brought in a BLUE tub. And since that day, he always asked for that blue tub--the one and only blue tub in the bag! One day during practice, Jackson was handed a red tub. He told Miss Melissa, "This one isn't mine. Mine is blue. I need my blue drum." That afternoon, Jackson came home from school upset b/c he didn't get his blue drum! At this point, I had no idea what he was talking about. But the day of the program, Miss Melissa filled us in, as she was darting past us to go get Jackson's blue drum!!
Notice in the video, she personally hands his drum to him! We LOVE LOVE LOVE the music teachers at his school--they are soo sweet and they love my kid, so that makes them even more special to me! Well, all of Jackson's teachers love on him, and it calms my heart knowing that he's not only learning, he's being nurtured and cared deeply about at the same time. I LOVE his school!! I can't say enough wonderful things about the sweet sweet ladies!
Jackson was a hoot during the show--his hat kept falling over his eyes, and the teachers would fix it...and he would pull it back down! You'll see it all in the video! And then at the end of the first song, he really didn't know where to put that big drum! It didn't fit on his lap, so he sets it to the side, then on the floor....as his Momma, I thought it was hysterical! Anyone else might just look at it and say, "what is that kid in the back doing?" but you have to know Jackson!! :)
After the 3yr olds were done, they were to sit and watch the 4 yr olds sing their 3 songs...and Jackson participated in their program as well! HA!! :)
