Ty's First Field Day...

Field Day is always a fun day...Ty was super excited about it...and couldn't wait until Friday. 
Pre-k- 1 went from 9-11...and each grade wore a different color t-shirt. 
The kids stayed in their own classroom groups and just rotated around the 12 events. so, just a little friendly competition amongst your class. A lot different from what I grew up with...but hey, they don't know any different and they all had a blast! 


ty and his posse...


First up was the obstacle course....then a little scooter swimming relay..goggles and all..it was pretty funny....



then to the bouncy houses...girls in a princess one, boys in Avenger....they had a blast in that! 

sisters being pesky sisters...haha! 

then to a little relay race...


and a water event...i thought Ty might opt out of this..as did Hanna...haha..since he's our child who doesn't like to get his clothes wet...but, he was all about it....I was so proud! lol. 
they were given little communion type cups and would fill them up with water from the bucket and would try and get the other side of classmates wet...they had a ball! 


Luckily, the fog and clouds dissipated and it was a gorgeous hot morning....


ty has 2 loose teeth...so, you could find his fingers on his teeth wiggling them everytime he was in line waiting..ha! 


now to the sponge race....dip a large sponge into water...pass it over your head to the person behind you...last person squeeze out the remaining water into the bucket....





several perks of having your mom-mom as the superintendent....one being a baby holder for awhile..haha! Ty didn't want his sunglasses to get wet during the water event...so, claire wore them..hehe! 


lots of wet kiddos...


a silly face dress up kinda race...


treasure hunt....gold deblums were hid underneath some frisbees and kids had to run, pick a frisbee to turn over and see if any coins underneath....team with most at the end won....
this was ty's favorite....i think bc of the parents running it....they were a lot of fun! 


off to sword fighting...they all knew the rules and had been practicing in PE...you had to get the noodle/sword in between their feet....
They were all so excited about this one...
ty and his best little school friend were a pair...


and now a torch race...


get your stick, run and grab a bean bag sack, place on your stick and run and place sack in your hula hoop. 


and a potato hockey race...
i have visions of our potato heads becoming hockey pucks now..haha..


and a little chop stick race...pick up your animal with the chop sticks, run and place in hula hoop...


and after 2 hours..the girls were done, and hungry and the olympic games were over..ha! 
love our little, soon to be, Kinder graduate...he had so much fun! 


but, this little one loves books...so, he could not wait to attend the book fair. He had gone on tuesday to make his "wish list" and hit up his mom-mom friday morning before school to grab a few...since she swung by and took him to school that morning...(Travis had been gone since early thursday..and it saved me a back and forth trip drop off and field day)...thanks mom! 
but, after field day, Ty got to go back again, and it was the girls turn. they chose some good books. 



 2 thumbs up for his first Field Day....fun morning watching him and interact with his classmates..
