We love Field Day around here! It usually always marks the last full day of school.
I took the girls to school and then dropped Ethan off at my mom's for the day. From there I headed back to the school to get my assignment for Session #1...the 4th & 5th graders. It was kind of a sad morning because this was Brenna's last field day.
I love that our school rents these really cool inflatables for field day. We usually have 5 or 6 of them there and then the rest of the activities are obstacle courses and games that our PE teacher comes up with. The big kids don't have to do any kind of rotation through the activities. It's a free for all...however, they are encouraged to do each activity at least once.
This was a new inflatable for us this year...the Rat Race. It was harder than it looked. I raced Brenna through it and came out with a "rug" burn on my elbow...I must have rubbed along the stitching some where. I forgot how bad those things hurt.
We are ready to start summer vacation and are hoping the sun decides to shine for more than one day at a time.
We set the pool up on Monday, because it was such a gorgeous day, and had it filling with water while we were at Family Fun Night. We finished filling it on Tuesday but haven't been able to even attempt to get in it because the weather got cold and rainy again. :( Here's hoping for some warm weather...and soon!
