The silent zone

Right before school ended for the year, we joined my son for field day. The kids had a blast working through a number of stations such as foot races, soccer, a maze, juggling, face painting and even a silent zone. Ahhhh, the silent zone…the kids were supposed to sit in there for one minute to earn their stamp for that activity. My kiddo decided he was going to break the record, and so began a most surprising occurrence…30 minutes of not one word out of my son! He is a chatter box…a unending stream of questions…be it what, why or how. He is also a committed little individual, and once he set his mind to the record I had little doubt he would in fact make it happen.

I must confess we did try to break him…but despite the giggles, he held strong.
