Everyone but Ms. R exited to run the 50 yard dash ... She didn't come in first, but not last either. She still wasn't thrilled about it. At all. Maybe that's why she likes dancing. At her age, there is no winners and losers. Just a bunch of little girls twirling around.
Fun was has by some. Ms. R was not one of the ones having fun. As you can tell in the picture above, she was a lot less than enthusiastic to be there. She is SO not into athletic pursuits. They allowed the kids to opt out of any event they wanted to ... she participated in three out of 8 events. (1) Three Legged race with me (2) 50 Yard Dash, which I had to convince her to run (3) The Pig Toss. *sigh* I will come to terms with the fact that my daughter prefers dolls, dancing and crafts to sports and being outdoors ... eventually.
The librarian also wrote a request to the city asking for "beautification" materials for the school flower beds. The city gave the school the grant and yesterday the kids (k-5) planted 100's of beds of perennials and spread two truck loads of mulch. The kids efforts really paid off, the school looked fabulous after they were all done.
