As part of our school year wrap up we Charlie had his little Joy School Graduation. He’s been doing Joy School this year with 3 other ruff and tumble boys. Until this year I haven’t been able to connect with a group of moms and kids Charlie’s age to do Joy School. Because these boys were all in other pre-schools we only did Joy School once a week but I’m so glad we did. There are so many parts of the Joy School curriculum that I wanted him to learn and experience. Lessons didn’t always turn out as planned and often I wondered if the more appropriate name for this bunch would be “Silly School” but all in all we had a great time.
I didn’t get a single picture at graduation (it was C R A Z Y). But, I do have this awesome video that we recorded on our last day of school. These boys weren’t really into the singing part of Joy School, but the second I suggested that they make a music video, complete with Michael Jackson moves to I’ve Got Joy they were all over it. I had a hunch that they wouldn’t be quite as uninhibited in front of their mommy audience so I decided to video it and show it at the graduation instead of have them perform.
Hazel is manning the iPhone video camera so it might make you a little seasick, but I think her filming style is quiet unique. It adds an edgy effect (which is what we’re going for here).
Isn’t that awesome!?
Oh, and have I mentioned how into Michel Jackson Charlie is? He wanted to name Peter, ‘Beat It.’
I love Joy School.
