Field Trip

Friday, January 15, 2010

I work in a class with children with Autism. Today we took our kids on a field trip. We were going to visit the Jappenese garden near our school, but it was closed when we got there, so we went to the park instead. I had so much fun. I love being in shape. I chased some of the kids, and was delighted to see them laugh while they ran away from me. I pushed them on the swings and then went on the swings and let them push me. I tried to show them how to pump a swing, but some of them just weren't getting it. It was a fun day. Somehow, I know if I wasn't in shape, I would not have enjoyed this day so much.

    That's wonderful!! Those things can be more motivating than anything. There's nothing like actual proof that all you've done really has made a difference.

    I'm happy for you!

    That's great, Jeannie! I'm really happy for you. It really is amazing how much more one can appreciate the little things in life (playing in a park, climbing the hills of San Francisco, etc.) when not out of breath.

    I'm so glad you had a great day!

    Yeah YOU! and yeah for the kids too to have such a caring teacher... very very cool... a close friend of mine has a profoundly autistic son.. and some of the things his teachers would do would curl your hair!!

    You are absolutely right - stuff like that isn't any fun when you are out of shape. How awesome for you that has all changed! You are in great shape now and got to reap the rewards today!
