Field day is one of them most exciting days for any elementary schooler during the end of the school year. With all of the frequent rain we have been having the field day was postponed twice and it ended up falling on the last day of school. I loved watching Madeline and her friends rotate through all of the different stations. She seemed to love the obstacle course the best, the three-legged race, and the big bouncy ball station. After the rotating stations, all of the first graders headed over to the running relay station. I loved watching Madeline run her little heart out. She was so fierce and determined during the hurdle relay and it was amazing to see how much height she got over those hurdles. Lastly, the kids competed against the other first grade classes in the tug-o-war station. Unfortunately, Madeline’s class didn’t win their first one but that was expected as their class was a little bit smaller in size. Still, she had so much fun!
Abby had her very last elementary school field day and had a blast running in the relays with her friends and classmates. The relays consisted of running only, running and jumping over tiny hurdles, and running while pushing a tire. The tire race was hilarious to watch. Although she had a great time doing the relay racing, the highlight of every field day is definitely the tug of war. Each grade has their own competitions. Abby’s 5th grade class won the tug of war twice and lost three times. Oh, how I will miss watching Abby have fun at field day with her friends.
It is always so much fun to pop over to the elementary school to see a little bit of field day. My favorite events to watch are the tug-o-war and the dashes and relays. This year Mike was working close to home so he was able to come and see Abby at the tug-o-war with Madeline and me. Abby’s class won a few times but it was the other class with the really big kids that ended up winning the entire thing. Madeline and I came back after lunch to watch Abby run in a few of the dashes. Abby had so much fun showing off Madeline to her friends and just being social.
