"Fun Friday" has been Cole's favorite day of the week for 2 years. This is the name his Special Education Teacher, Mrs. Isaak, gave to Friday class. On Friday only the students with special needs are in the class. Now, don't get me wrong - I'm all for inclusion, but, this Friday class is amazing. Mrs. Isaak plans the coolest things for her students, and, EVERYONE participates, regardless of their level of need.
One of the funnest things is the annual Cubs vs. Cards T-ball game. It's always on the last Friday of the year. It is the coolest thing to watch EVERY student get to bat & score. (there are a few students who are unable to walk - Mrs. Isaak carries them up to bat, and, runs the bases. seriously - the woman is just that amazing!) You can tell by the look on the kids face that this day is so special to them.
Cole isn't having an identity crisis...he played for both teams that day. (a bit reluctantly! we just told him that any runs he made while batting for the cardinals would actually count for the cubs!)
And, Baby Jacob came to cheer Big Brother on too :)
