Sports Day and TGA Highland Games

During the last week of school, all three boys participated in the school sponsored Sports Day (Field Day) and the PTA sponsored Highland Games. The Sports Day included formal competitions in a variety of track and field events. The Highland Games included the not so formal competitions like Haggis Hurling (to which our boys said no way!), Wellie Toss, and Tug of War. The Highland Games also included activities like a bounce house, a military obstacle course and a Beat the Goalie Game.

The Sports Day was so organized that all of the Prep School competed at the same time on the same field. This would have been great if I had three heads but since Scott was out of town and I was trying to catch all three boys' events, this was not a particularly fun outing for me! The boys had a nice time and it was a beautiful day so I should not complain!

The Highland Games were much more relaxed but a little less organized so there was a different feel to the day. It is also less competitive as the children were divided into their school houses and therefore are competing in groups which also helps it to feel more relaxed! Christopher did score third for his age group in the Wellie Toss! Go Little American Boy!

School's Out 4 Summer

School finally finished for our boys yesterday! We've been counting down and now the holiday is here! Check out the picture of the boys from their last day of school. I've posted the first day photo again just for comparison!

Ethan had his friends Michael and Chris over for a sleepover and so we've been counting down for that as well!

The boys enjoyed the diet coke/mentos explosion trick, a water gun fight, movies and a Wii tournament.

Scott had been on a business trip for 10 days and returned yesterday as well, so that made everything that much sweeter!

The weather has turned cold and rainy but we are not going to let that get us down!

Hope your summer is splendid!
