Sports Day

Today was Junior Primary Sports Day. I'm feeling...

DOG TIRED!

Running in the Batton Race (I think we won this one?)Hurdles - a man on a mission!Beanbag throw, then hop to next hoop... look at that concentration!

Sack Race: look, he's mid-air!!! (We actually won this race, but the first prize ribbons were given to another team... that tried hard. I'm not competitive, but I was a bit ticked!!! Ok, maybe I am a bit competitive when it comes to my kids?!!!


Yes, H did all the running/hopping/jumping around... but us parents had to lead them around and instruct them what to do ... constantly! H's team came 2nd overall. And he only cried once, when he didn't come first in the sprints. It was heartbreaking trying to explain to him that only 3 people can get ribbons on that race. Poor baby was so tired. Not only from the exercise today, but he didnt' get to bed til 9pm, as we had free tickets to see "One night with the king", a new movied based on the biblical story of Esther. Bit confusing (over their heads) for the kids, but was a good depiction.

So it's Chinese takeaway for tea. And a long warm spa bath for me!!!

I enjoyed your comment on my blog about Halloween and I agree there's enough crap on tv without adding any more to their wild imaginations.
