Today was Kade's field day (my first field day as a parent!). It was SUPER hot and it was almost 3 hours long, but I was so glad I went! Poor Keira was bored and sweating, but I took some snacks and drinks for her; glad I did! A lot of parents took the day off and cheered their kiddos on. Kai's field day is tomorrow, and his is only 45 minutes long (I suppose they don't expect the same out of 6 year olds!) Here are a few pictures from the day
Kade during the Tug-of-war (you can tell he's starting to slip! For those of you that aren't family, he's second from the left; white shirt and red shorts)
This is Mason (cousin) after winning 2nd place in the 100 yd. dash
Here, Kade is watching the 4th grade girls run. I had to take a picture; since he "leaned" in to watch!

They're smokin the other kids!
Last but not least, a video. It might be boring for you to watch, but It's my proud mama moment! Kade was lined up for the tire push relay (I have no idea what its actually called), and I realized he was helping a special ed student. He was the last leg of the race and ran alongside this special kiddo. He told me his PE teacher asked him if he would, and he said that was fine with him. He's really beginning to make decisions that show his good character; both at school and in baseball! Speaking of, he was one of the only kids at his baseball game last night, that DIDN'T throw his glove down in a fit after they lost. We told him that we would much rather see him make a good character decision like that, than hit a double. In the beginning of the season, he would get really upset if he messed up or stuck out. Now, he's a lot more composed and building character! Okay; enough of the mama soap box.
