Q7's field day.
Down to Magruder Park for field day. Today was K & 1st grade, so lots of kids. There are four K classes and four 1st grade classes, and they are all stuffed. Lots of kids. Q7 was on the yellow team, so we had to run out and get a yellow t-shirt for her on Thursday night. She paired it with a too-small pair of purple shorts and a pair of pink and white fur-topped knee-high socks. And mary-janes. So she looked spectacular. Actually, this first photo is spectacular. M7 is very photogenic. I took a few of her for her mom ... and all of them were great. Q7 got somewhat washed out in the sun. But look at that smile on her.
Chasing the soccer ball. Q7 kept telling it it was a bad soccer ball and had to go to detention because, as she said, "whenever I tried to kick it straight it flew in the reeeeaaally wrong direction."
Sack race! She did not fall. But she looks very determined..
Tire roll. Q7 said "It was also very very naughty" ... in that it couldn't stay straight. Video to the right.
Balancing the ball on the tennis racquet. After this game we did the egg race ... but they had only TWO eggs left by the time we got there. And none by the time we left.
I spent the day spritzing kids with water, taking them to the bathroom, keeping them in-line, and generally hanging around.
