The boys had their Field Day last week.
It just so happened to be Isaak's birthday on that day. I was supposed to be giving my final to my college students. My assistant was kind enough to give it for me. What was I thinking having a baby (Isaak) the last week of school, and another one (Mica) on the first week of school? I've never been able to go to a single one of the boy's Field Days. I was happy to go!
Plunger and a Ball - If they dropped it, they were supposed to use the plunger to pick it back up. Not very many kids did that. They used their hands.
Hockey Stick and a Ball
Gunny Sack Race - This one cracked me up! Mica (the one in blue) said, "Mom Field Day turned into Valentines Day. Sofie asked to be my partner in the 3 legged race." He's had a crush on her all year.
Mica's teacher joined in on the fun.
Racing With a Wet Sponge - Their line had to race to fill up a bucket down the way. Whatever line filled the bucket up first won.
Tug of War - The one girl I know, and her Mom's ok with online photos. I swear Mica was thinking, So what the girls are up.
Mica - Yes we won!
The Bounce House Race
Field Day has changed, since I was little. It used to be long jump, high jump, pass the baton, who could run around the track the fastest. We got ribbons for these things if we placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.
Now there's no winners really. It's all for fun. There's no ribbons.
