Last Friday night we went to the Davidson Academy football game, where some of our students go. Before the game I prepared Hannah to cheer for the Bears. She enjoyed practicing "Go Bears!" Well, when the team ran onto the field I encouraged her to cheer. She said, "I don't see the bears." We did our best to explain why there weren't real bears there, but why everyone was yelling for them. She inquired several more times as to where the bears were, but by the end of the evening, she was yelling proud and strong "Go Bears!"
Also, she was confused by the fact that the announcer kept calling her name. A guy on the other team, who made most of the plays for that team, had the last name of Hanna. So, there were moments during the game where the announcer was saying, "Hanna...." every few minutes. Hannah kept looking around. Poor thing. Someone there said she must feel like she's in the Twilight Zone. A deep loud voice keeps calling her name and she can't find the bears! It was quite entertaining.
