Track and Field Day

I totally forgot to post about helping our little kinders with track and field day, the last day before Spring Break . It was really fun to see my own child (and my nephew) in their little school world.

I loved it.

We started with the Parachute.
Savy wouldn't come stand by her mom, but Aidan quickly rearranged to be next to me. My Savs
Savannah and her cute little friend, Brooke. I love the way little girls always have to hold hands.
FrisbeeThe boys - - - classic!
(doesn't Aidan look so cool?)
Boys vs. GirlsTug-a-warboys vs. girls againThis was Aidan's all-time favorite event of the day. Go figure, he likes brute strength (and let me tell you the boy has plenty of it!)
down, but not beaten.
Freeze tag - this is where I learned Savannah's a wimp like her mother, staying on the outskirts of the game rather than venturing into the masses.
Snacks and a break on the playground where Savy caught up with her "boyfriend," Kyle. I hear a lot about this boy and just cracked up at their little conversation on the swings.
It was a fun day, but at the end of the whole thing, I couldn't help but wonder what happened to relay races, hurdles, long jump and the high jump. Isn't that track and field? Or are we really turning into a society of no competition and everyone's a winner so we can't do things like that? Just curious. Maybe for the older kids in the afternoon it was real track and field.

Cute, cute pictures! Thanks for getting some of my little guy for me. He LOVED that day.

And I was totally thinking the same thing as your last paragraph. What's up with that. T-ball has me wondering, too. Is it bad that I believe in winning and losing? Ha!

I was thinking the same thing when you mentioned how cute it is when little girls hold hands.

Cute pictures of the kids!

First of all, no I did not cut my own hair, are you crazy?? I certainly am not!
And can you imagine five year olds running hurdles and doing the long jump? That has to be the older kids. Remember in elementary you didn't do that stuff until you were bigger??
And she is really cute. She seems so grown up in all the pictures, like older than even the kids around her. It's crazy to me!
