Johnny Appleseed Day

Thursday, October 2, 2014

A couple of weeks ago Wip wanted to have a playdate with one of his new friends from school. I emailed the friends mom and we decided to meet up at the science center. Wip was beside himself. He was so excited. Before we met them I told him that we could stop for lunch. We were running a little late and I said that we might need to stop at Wendy's instead of ChickFilA and he grumbled. When I explained that the Wendy's was closer and we did not want to leave his friend waiting he exclaimed "Wendy's is good!  I will eat Wendy's". It was precious. The playdate was wonderful. Both boys were well behaved, loved being with each other, and I got to meet a new friend (the mom) win.

Fast forward to Johnny Appleseed Day at Wip's school. It is a big deal. Not only do you get to be out of your uniform (side note: uniforms on children are adorable and easy) but you also get to make apple pie, play apple games, and just really do all things apple. I was not able to be there, but that new friend I made at the science center? We have mom code. She knew I wanted to just leave my meeting and be whipping up apple pie with the other children in Wip's class. So at about 8:45am I received this picture with the caption "he is having a blast":

Then I received this picture with the caption "he is so happy":
Finally, she sent me this one (it did not need a caption):
I just about melt. This one just made me fast forward 20 years to a rehearsal dinner speech. These are the new boys in town (they are all new to the school). The new buddies. These two have made my son excited to go to school. I am so thankful for them both (and their mommies;).
