I can't think of much that I don't love about my kids school. It's a smallish Catholic primary school with lovely values, interesting & fun learning and a very friendly and supportive school community. The way our school goes about celebrating and organizing activities is fabulous and I'm always impressed.
Sportsday was no exception.
We had some pre-sportsday jitters last night at home but I reminded the girls it doesn't matter where they placed in their events, I would be proud of them for having a go & having fun with it. Charlotte wanted to make sure her sneakers were done up very tight so she could run her fastest. So cute.
Anyway, the day coincided with the breakup of playgroup for the twins, they are off to kindy next term! (umm, weren't the twins just born last year?). So Jeff took Mimi & Chels to playgroup & I took Bud to watch Georgie & Char.
The whole event was great. The whole school kicked off with a new health hustle they had been rehearsing this term and it was so great to see them all dancing and doing little spot shuffles and air punches! Hehe
It was pretty warm to be out in the sun today so I had to zinc us all up so we didn't get too sun kissed walking between the girls events on the oval. I think that's the hardest thing once you have 2 children at school, dividing the attention. Jeff and the twins got there around lunchtime with the twins so, along with all the grandparents, we were all able to cover a bit of ground and see most things.
My favourites were the running relays, both girls came 3rd in their heats and they were so proud, as were we, and I also enjoyed the tug of war. Each year level has a turn. And there's also mums vs. year 6/7 girls and dads vs. year 6/7 boys. Both mums and dads won this year! Way to go parents!
The day finished off with team chants, health hustle (with parents and kids all involved in the dancing) then results and speeches.
Our team, BLUE, won!!!! The first win for blue since 2003! 2 years before Georgia was even born!! The girls were super excited.
Good day had by all.
