i spent the morning with max at field day. (or fun, water-filled day as i like to call it) i followed him and his class around while they carried water from here to there and over their heads. they played musical chairs, stacked jumbo cups, threw basketballs into garbage cans and carried a ball on a toilet plunger. and enjoyed a short break while they ate otter pops. the kids seemed to be having a great time and i guess that's all that matters (they have no idea what they're missing - tug o' war, the long jump, races and ribbons - haha) max was a gentleman when he gave his towel to one of his friends that didn't have one. and then cody did the same with his towel. they thought they were pretty cool. when the class came in for a break, i came home. after lunch, they came back out to do more activities, like shoe fly, ball bouncing and water limbo. his favorite from the day was getting to pass the bucket (with holes in it) and sponge over their heads. which resulted in lots of soaking wet kids. i'd say it was a successful day, he enjoyed himself a nap after school.
