Field Day

Field day can only mean one thing - school is almost over for the year. I can't believe it's already time for summer to arrive and Kate to move into the first grade. I always looked forward to field day growing up - when I went to E.C. Brice we would walk from the school over to Dellwood Park for our field day every year, which was several blocks away through a residential neighborhood. IT was always exciting though! Kate's field day was supposed to be outside at school, but unfortunately it was raining so everything had to be shifted indoors. They still did all the relay races and games, but it's just not quite the same when you're stuck inside. At least it wasn't hot though. Since it was her first one, Kate didn't miss out on being outside so she was perfectly happy with field day.
They split the kids into grades, so kindergarten and first grade were together for their game time, and then the older kids were also in two groups so it was't insanely crowded. They also only spent a couple of hours doing field day activities before going back to the classroom for the remainder of the day (although they just had a movie day after that) and I recall ours always being a full day, but I could be wrong. Either way, it was fun.
