Ethan experienced his first ever Sports Day last Sunday. He had been looking forward to it for many weeks now, and every day leading up to the Sports Day, he would report to us the preparations and pratices he did in school.
We arrived about 15 minutes before the events kicked off, so little Hannah had some time to roam around too…
First, they had a torch run and then the kids from all the classes did a march past. Look at my little boy, all grown up!
For the events, each class was split into two teams of different colors. For Ethan’s class, he was in the GREEN team, challenging his other classmates in the YELLOW team.
First they had to walk on a balance beam.
…and then weave in and out of the traffic cones.
Then, pick up a small coconut, aim and hit a row of 4 cans.
Pick up the coconut, arrange the cans back in order, and run back to the team to tag the next person.
Cheer as loudly as you can for your team!
It was a close fight, but at the end of it, Ethan’s green team won! … and parents of the kids in the green team cheered and high-fived each other!
Yay for team spirit!
The kids each got a medal and a goodie bag:
There were also events for the parents to participate in together with their kids.
I had not planned on taking part at first, because I had to care for Hannah, but one of Ethan’s teachers offered to carry Hannah for a few minutes, so I could participate.
And our team WON! Yay!!
All in all, Ethan really had fun during his Sports Day. In addition to winning his medal and prizes, he got to hang out with his friends after his event.
..and of course, he kept saying that he WON!
