Pretty much the best school day of the year....Field day for Paige & Rees!
I brought the double stroller along for Stevie & Neela and we had the funnest time watching Rees & Paige play all morning long. Afterwards we had a picnic lunch with Rees & her classmates.
Sweet sweet memories.
Rees, Ellery & Caine....these 3 played on the same soccer team a year ago & every kindergarten girl has a crush on Caine :)
Then we caught up with Paige's class for my very FAVE event...tug o war!
Mrs. Mandegary's 4th grade class
Mrs. Madegary is the sweetest teacher. Combine that with her umbrella & I told her she was just like Mary Poppins!
Back over for chalk time with Rees:
Everything feels a little bittersweet right since we are moving in a month. This picture especially tugs at my heart strings...
Watched Paige & Paige win the Sack Race:
This pic of the Paige's make my heart ache a little too...
The other night I was tucking Paige into bed & out of the blue she said, "I'll never find another Paige."
Oh man, moving can be so hard.
But I keep telling myself & in my prayers listing all the things I'm so grateful we got to experience & have here. It's ending sooner that I thought, but I'm deeply grateful we got them for the time we did.
Stevie & Neela are always popular at school...
Paige's class took full advantage of the water stations!
In between events Stevie & Neela play, play, played!
We finished the day with Rees' class...
Rees & Ellery were so happy & cute when they won at Tug O War...
Sweet Rees struggles a lot with eating foods. She has a very limited list of things she'll eat. But Wynn was the same way (really all our kids have been, but Wynn & Rees so far have had the hardest time). Now I see how much Wynn has grown with what she eats though, so I figure it works itself out in it's own time so there's no need to worry. Many things are like that with parenting little ones, they seem to work themselves out as we love them & as they grow.
So since Rees didn't want to eat the provided picnic lunch, we packed her her own lunch & went to get it from her empty classroom. It was a treat to get a picture of her in there alone, in her very first classroom.
After lunch we hurried home. Neela crashed for a long nap and Stevie & I snuggled on my bed for a good book reading session.
Everything felt pretty perfect about Field Day.
