I was recently treated to one of my proudest moments as a parent yet when my twins, Arin and Nya, were one of the few KIPP DC students chosen to perform in front of a sold out crowd at the legendary Warner Theatre. KIPP celebrated their 10-yr anniversary in grand style showcasing their best performing ensembles from their nine schools in the District of Columbia. The show contain everything from a drumline and an orchestra to tango dancing. Not to mention Arin and Nya singing! It was an awesome show. Forever Forward >>> KIPP. Gosh, I love this school.
Friday the kids took part in the Kicks for Kids thanks to KIPPDC and courtesy of the DC UNITED at RFK stadium in DC. They were treated to a good soccer game with plenty of goals, dinner, t-shirts and free Adidas shin guards and socks. At halftime the kids were allowed to throw their new gear on and head out to the field to folic and try to kick a ball more than they kick one another. It was pretty brutal out there LOL
The kids had a great time and as they ran off the field the crowd high-fived them like when athletes leave the field.
“I’m a celebrity,” said Arin. He was super excited about the encouragement he got from the crowd.
#DADsRULE … Encourage the kids. High-fives are always necessary.
