Track & Field Day!

The second and third graders had track & field day today. Nathan ran in a few races and did a few other activities (potato shuttle, t-ball...something else). I don't think he won anything, but since they don't really recognize the winners, it didn't matter. He just loved participating. He had a huge grin on his face the entire time!

Kristi was there too (she's in 3rd grade this year) but she didn't participate in any of the activities. She stuck with her teacher all afternoon. She had a grand time too. I saw her yelling and jumping up and down like a cheerleader several times. I think she probably got more exercise cheering her friends on than they got running!

The only down side was that it was cold. And windy. And cold. And threatening rain. And windy. And cold. Nana, Grandpa, Felice and I ended up leaving before all the events were done because it was too windy. And cold.

Fancy finished up high school today. Zowie! She graduates on Sunday. The other kids have all next week, and then they're done for the year too. This year has been a challenge (with the school days being longer) but it's gone by so fast!

(I'm not sure if I've covered this before, but our school year is short this year because of a major construction project at the school. They have to be out - everything out - by May 6.)

There's so much going on in these last couple weeks of school. Field trips, concerts, activities, ceremonies...busy days!
