I am so blessed to live where I do and have amazing family members. This week the school had field day. Adah's grade had it wed. and Jonah's grade had it thurs. Since we live so close to the school (literally next door to it) and since my sweet mother-in-law loves her new baby grandson..and me of course.. I was able to leave the baby for a couple hours and walk over to help out with field day.
It was very strange and pulled at my heart to send Joshua off to someone else bright and early at 8:15 am, but I knew he was in good hands and I knew how much it meant to his brother and sister, so I pushed through. Besides, I absolutely love being at the kids' school. The atmosphere is energetic and fun and it makes my kids grin proudly when they see me on campus.
My favorite part of field day 1 was the story Adah's teacher told me. I dropped her at her classroom and went to get my game assignment from the PE coach, and apparently during that time Adah put her whole class into stitches :) She burst through the classroom door and promptly flexed her muscles and growled! Then she hit the floor and started doing push-ups. The girl was ready to destroy at those field day games. She is so hilarious.. Her personality is totally not to get all competitive and sporty, it was all a show for the sake of being theatrical. I love her soooo much.
My favorite part of field day 2 was watching my big boy do push-ups. My station was the push-up station and I helped every class do them. When it was Jonah's turn he sure made mama proud. Though he is the smallest kid in his class by both height and weight he dominated the push-up competition! Jonah did upwards of 50 push-ups in good form. How amazing is that?
I took my phone the second day and got some snaps of Jonah and his classmates.
