Mother nature pulled out all the stops to provide a perfect day to celebrate this amazing Waterfront Montessori community! The 3rd annual WSF Fall Family Fun Day took place on Sunday, October 22nd in Liberty State Park’s Freedom Pavilion.
Forty-eight WFM families came together to eat, drink, and play!
The amazing Mary Beth, led the activities committee, which provided fun for children of all ages. The younger children painted pumpkins and kindness rocks (http://thekindnessrocksproject.com/), and did some ‘retro’ potato sack racing. The older kids were very dedicated to the Nerf gun activity - at least until the ammo ran out!
The children were overjoyed to take part in various athletic games and activities run by WFM's Coach Z, also from WOW Sports.
A big thank you to Mary Beth and Coach Z, and all of the individual volunteers, who created and ran children’s activities. As parents, we thank you all for the smiles on our children’s faces!
This beautiful spot also provided a great opportunity to engage in some urban grilling. A big shout out to Fahima for spearheading food and beverage. Fahima and Craig - thank you for all of your hard work!
We hope everyone enjoyed a burger, dog, or potluck sampling. We are so lucky to have a dined on a wide variety of international foods brought by families. Thank you to everyone who participated in the potluck.
Last, but certainly not least, we were pleased to announce our raffle basket winner. The KINDa Awesome chance basket, which included Auggie & Me (follow up book to Wonder), 365 Days of Wonder (a kindness quote book), Kind bars, a "Choose Kind" coffee tumbler, a WFM shirt, and the much modeled and coveted Astronaut Helmet, was won by the very kind WFM parent, Soni and her daughter. Congratulations Soni!!
Thank you to all of the WFM families for making this a truly special day!
