Field Day

Do you remember Field Day growing up? When I was in elementary school at Midway, this was the highlight of the year! The ribbons, tug-of-war, and popsicle are still some great memories of my childhood. I can honestly say it was even more fun watching Ryan experience his very first field day than participating in my own.

These boys can turn anything into a light saber:-).


Mrs. Sims and her sweet class




Daddy and Ally also came to watch Ryan

Ryan was on the Warrior tribe. They got to decorate their team flag before competition began.


Heather and her daughter Ainsley. Two of the sweetest girls I know!


Each tribe had 9 or 10 students of all grades to keep the competition as fair as possible. Ryan's team color was orange.


And then the relays began. See the determination on RW's face? He is such a great little athlete.


Ainsley was very good at the Island dress up relay.

Ryan's favorite was the sponge relay. The kids had a lot of fun getting wet on this one.

I think Honey had as much fun as the kids at events like this.

Way to go FWCS! I can't wait for field day 2011!!




(Sidenote to Caryn and Kacey: this picture totally reminded me of Nana's family reunion pics...Ryan's expression could totally be mine at 7!)

Wow. I actually forgot about field day until this post. Nostalgia! Must be so heartwarming watching your kiddos experience the same childhood experiences you did.
