QOTW: Why attend non-gymnastics events?



This week's question of the week is:

Why attend non-gymnastics events?

Preschool cheerleading in Memphis TN

I was recently told by a parent that they did not have time to attend our fellowship events. So, I thought I would share with you all why attending fellowship events are important to your littles. Let's use an example ... Spirit Technique's Pumpkin Patch Flash Party—a celebration that not only offers a whimsical escape but also sows the seeds of values and memories that can last a lifetime. Our focus will be on those precious souls aged 12 and younger, because as we all know, these early years are when the foundation of a remarkable life is laid.


Remember the days when the world was as big as our imagination, and everything was seen through the lens of wonder? Those were the days that etched the blueprint of our values and character. Growing up, I vividly recall my school's annual trips to a pumpkin patch, a tradition that wasn't just about pumpkins; it was about shaping our hearts. These memories, etched with love and shared laughter, became foundation of what many of you have heard me call the hugging season, my favorite time of year.



Pumpkin Patch Flash Party: A Wholesome Experience

I can't help but share the wonders of the Pumpkin Patch Flash Party. Picture this: wide-open spaces, vibrant hues of orange and green, the scent of earth, and a symphony of giggles filling the air. The pumpkin patch becomes a canvas where kids can discover the beauty of nature, fostering a connection that's increasingly rare in today's fast-paced world. Our little ones explore the cycle of life, watching pumpkins grow from tiny seeds to robust fruits—an invaluable lesson in itself.


Instilling Values through Fun Activities

Now, let's dive into the heart of it all: the activities that transform this whimsical event into a classroom for life's values. I remember last year learning about our junior staff's lack of excitement for dogs, and seeing our ninjas enjoy the slides and bounce houses. The little ones, with pumpkins cradled in their arms, learned about responsibility as they cared for their "babies," and oh, how they laughed! The next week in class they shared the joys and challenges of their pumpkin journey.


Making Lasting Memories

Our littles grow up faster than the blink of an eye. The Pumpkin Patch Flash Party is a treasure trove of moments to hold onto. Imagine holding your child's hand as you explore the patch, choosing the perfect pumpkin. These simple acts are more than they seem—they're the threads that weave your hearts together. Let's not forget the importance of preserving these treasured moments. A photograph captures more than an image; it encapsulates the joy, love, and growth that transpired that day.



The Pumpkin Patch Flash Party, like other fellowship events, is more than an event—it's an opportunity to infuse values and memories that will shape your children's lives. As you tread the path of parenthood, let's embrace these moments with open arms, for it is within these little seeds of greatness that the essence of a remarkable life takes root. May these memories blossom into stories that inspire and hearts that radiate love.


Don't have a village to fellowship with? No problem come join Spirit Technique at our Pumpkin Patch Flash Party. No requirements. You don't need to be a member, a trial, a friend of someone, just come and know that you are in a safe place with people who want you and your little winning. It's free to come hang out.
