Dakota's Field Day

Last week Dakota's pre-k class got to participate in field day with the kindergarten classes. Some students from fifth grade were given the opportunity to escort the pre-k kids between activities and Dakota had a very quiet girl leading her around the field. Despite having just had mulch delivered that morning I decided to let the mulch wait and go watch my youngest participate in the fun. I'm glad I did!

They got to shoot soccer balls into a net:


Balance wiffle balls on top of bats and walk through cones:


Balance a tennis ball on top of a racket:


Throw hula hoops as far as they could:


Try to keep enough pressure on the ball between two poles and walk to a cone without dropping the ball; this was the hardest one!


Kick a huge bouncy ball down a hill (and then go get it!):


There were many other stations set up but as soon as Dakota asked me if she could go home with me I decided I needed to leave. We'd talked about my coming up there beforehand and she said she wanted to leave when I did but I wanted her to stay so she could practice for her upcoming graduation ceremony. In order for her to not have a breakdown I told her that her teacher needed her to stay for graduation practice (she really did say that) and made a quick exit. I was able to go without her crying and I couldn't believe it! She's come so far this past year she's nearly unrecognizable. My little sugar is getting tougher by the day!

Time for the Tooth Fairy

So, Harper FINALLY lost his first tooth. It seems that he's a bit later than most kids but I wasn't worried since I've never met...
