The Best Part

It is no secret we live right behind our local elementary school. The playground is a stone's throw from our back deck.

We used to be able to watch Wallene during recess and P.E. when she played outside with her classmates. Oh, the memories.

Well today is the best part of living so close to the school. Today they are doing their "XX School Olympics". So cool. All the kids march out of the school to the Olympic theme [they are all dressed to match their particular class]. Then they compete in various sports. The cheering and excitement is so much fun!

So if you will excuse me I am going to pour a cup a tea and sit on my back deck to cheer them on.

Let the games begin!

It's nice to know that some school are still giving emphasis to exercise and fun--so many have given up PT.

word vert; teoboll. Do the younger student get to play teoboll?

How fun...mini Olympics, I love it. The kids here at GK's school had a "field day" running, playing ball etc, at Ry's school they had more of an activity day with different stations with fun things, more like a carnival with prizes. The difference in the two schools is money. GK's school very middle class, Ry's school mo money.
And Linda is a funny bunny with the vert word...it is her thang...
vert word suffse. I know you can't tell but my fluffy slippers are suffse.

Hey girl....you are a 4th place winner in the Summer Solstice giveaway. You have won a rose colored GK faery doll. I can tell you right now that I am postive GK is more excited at you winning her fairy than you could possibly be. She hand picked this one and said I hope somebody I like, like Skippy Mom gets it and not a stranger. Too Funny. When she drew your name, I thought she was gonna lose it. Dancing, smiling.
Anyway Congrats on your "big" win.
