Field Day 2014 #fieldday

It seems the end of every school year is filled with as much anticipation and activity as the very beginning.  At least that’s how it is around here.  Field day, award ceremonies, end of school parties, yearbook signing, and graduations. This week,  I was able to attend several of these events and got to document some awesome moments for our kids.

Field Day 2014

As a kid, field day wasn’t really my thing. Let’s just say I haven’t always been athletically gifted. As a mom, I love field day! It was awesome to watch our children compete and cheer them on. They were having a great time and weather was just beautiful!!

The look of excitement on the boys faces when they were about to win the three-legged race for 2nd grade was priceless!3 legged race Field Day

Fourth grade has been a year of making great friends.  As room mom this year, I was privileged to get to know so many of Kaitlyn classmates. I kept hearing “Mrs Chase! Mrs Chase!” from all over the field and of course, I cheered them on too. I’m pretty sure most of them will be taller than me when 5th grade begins in the fall.Field day friends

This was right before the 2nd grade Potato Sack race. Sebastian had an epic moment at the end of this race where he leapt in the air and then rolled across the finish line. He came in second place but it was such a movie moment! I was too caught up in the moment to take a picture of it but I assure you it was greatness. Field Day potato sack raceOur school did a wonderful job of coordinating our field day. All of the kids had a blast!! They have all grown so much. More of their own distinctive personalities and strengths have shown through over the last few months. I cherish these days and look forward to the ones to come!!

What was Field Day like for you? I would love to hear any special Field Day memories you have!
