Field Day this year consisted of 4 different days of playing. Fortunately, I had all those days off work without even planning it. It was perfect. Ruth's was Tuesday. Maggie's Wednesday. Lydia's Friday. And Bennett had a 2 day event Friday and Monday. Once you're in middle school, the parents no longer volunteer to help, interact with students, or take fun action shots. Because each child had their own day I was able to spend a lot of time with each one, even though I still volunteered to help run events and stations.
The Softball throw. This was as close as I could get to the lower field events since I was still running the Bean Bag BINGO! You can't leave that unattended, the students could go wild!
Team Blue, Team Carney. This was the 6-man relay. Each runner made a full lap around the bus loop. It was a long lap, but they all did a great job and put forth their best effort. They weren't the fastest group, but they sure did run hard and fast.

Lydia's Field day was a smidge cloudy and nice and cool. It made their water games a little chilly in the morning, but thankfully Lydia's class water games were at lunch time. They got all wet, then went inside to dry off for the rest of the day. Not a bad schedule. I did a lot of face painting, but I also got to watch and help with several of the fun games too. This first one they had to dig though a bucket of flour and find as many pennies as possible. They loved it.
|Daddy even came for a little while|
|Lydia and Avery - friends since kindergarten. Sometimes, they could be twins.|
