We hope this is a core memory for them.

There are some things you do as a kid that just don't happen when you're an adult, and that includes most of the games you play in gym class while you're still in elementary school. Who among us doesn't have fond memories of standing in a circle to inflate that giant, rainbow colored parachute and running under it before it collapses? It was such a feeling of joy! 

That parachute has ended up being a part of a core memory for so many of us, so watching a group of high school seniors play this game one last time before moving on to college has us in our feels! 


What makes it even more special is the fact that the seniors were all wearing their caps and gowns as they sat together under the parachute, laughing together after they all made it under. It's something so pure and sweet — they're saying goodbye to a part of their childhoods, after all. It's heartbreaking, but at the same time, they're about to embark on such an exciting time in their lives with high school behind them.

If you're feeling a little emotional watching this, you're not the only one. Among the thousands of comments on the post were people who couldn't help but feel a little melancholy about the whole thing.

"Did this bring tears to anyone else’s eyes? Or just mine? I miss this so much. These were the easier days," one person wrote.

BRB — going to figure out where to buy one of these parachutes. Just because school ends doesn't mean this game has to!
