This was the first Field Day the kids have had. Kind of different from the way we had field day. They competed as a whole class, nothing was done individual. I like to know if my kid can run faster or jump higher than the other kids. Oh well. We had tons of fun. Me, Madison and Max watched Mackenzie all morning and then we went and had lunch with Jodie and Quincy and came back for Madison's Field Day. They got done early so I (and a sleeping Max) joined Madi's class until the bell rang. I had a blast spending the day with all the kids and can't wait to do it again next year.
Speed Stackers. Kenzie's a pro.
The Leaky Pipe race.
Obstacle Course. I believe Mackenzie was the only girl in her class to jump over this, the rest went under.
Kenzie and her BFF, Savannah.
Visiting the chicks in her classroom.
Getting a little wet.
Madi's first event. Garbage Can Basketball. She got the last ball in, when it was full of all the other balls. Yeah MADI!!
Wet & Wild. The kids had to grab a sponge out of the kiddie pool pass it over their heads to the back of the line and the last kid had to squeeze it out in the bucket. Try explaining this to kindergartners. They were clueless. (Most of them anyways.)
Madison is somewhere in those shadows.
Max joined Madi for a little break.
My little partner in crime. He spent the whole day out there with me.
Today was a good day. We went shoe shopping for Madison this morning, because she was going to be receiving an award for top AR in her class (reading) so she had to get some new shoes to wear. Of course Max made the shopping experience very interesting. He was more interested in the girl's shoes than the boy's. (Hoping this is a stage he will quickly grow out of.)
After that Billy and Tommy came over for a play date. (Well, Tommy slept and Billy and Max played.)
At 2:20 we arrived at the school to see Madison receive her award. She got a new Dr. Seuss book and a Reading Certificate. (For AR, they check out library books and after they read them they take tests on the computer to see how well they read it.) Her and one other student were the only ones in afternoon kindergarten to get an award. Yeah Madi!!!
Since I come from a family of "Big Boobs" (cry babies), I got a little teary-eyed and this is basically the blurriness that I saw. I don't know if I was teary because Madison was doing so good, or if it was the fact that her teacher got up and walked Madison up on the stage so she wouldn't be so nervous.
After the girls got out of school we went and got ice-cream for everyone. And now I think I'm going shopping (with no kids). And that makes for a good day.
