Field Day Today!

I had hoped to get out to my craft room today, but it never happened. What we did today was tons of fun though! Amy's school had their Field Day on Saturday for the first time ever. I wasn't too sure about it being on a Saturday, but I came to realize what a great idea it was. Parents/grandparents who normally can't attend during the week because of work could be there and enjoy time with their kids. Steve came for a short time, but wasn't feeling well, so I told him to go home and rest, while we enjoyed ourselves. There were all kinds of activities for the kids to do. First we played a bit of volleyball. Then the girls decided they REALLY wanted to go down the slide. Which they did too many times to count. Last year, we were told Jessica could go down the slide, but she was too nervous to do it by herself. This year...not a problem. She didn't care if Amy was with her or not, nothing was going to deter her from that slide! There was also a jumping enclosure in the shape of a train and those kids expended a ton of energy between those two activities.

There was also the requisite sack race, hippity hop race, three legged race as well as face painting (the girls refused to do that), bubbles, chalk, and belly bumpers. The bookmobile was also there and Amy insisted on going in with her library card to check out a book. :o) If you look closely in the background, you can see the jungle gym that the girls play on after school just about every day. It was on this play equipment that Amy broke that molar last fall.
And time for lots of fun and giggles.
We were there the whole time and it was just wonderful to see how much fun the girls were having. The event was free and the memories we'll have are priceless!

I plan on getting out to that craft room tomorrow!!!
