Our little Emma took part in her first ever Sports Day a few weeks ago. It was such a meaningful event for me because I know she had come a long, long way from the time when she had to be all wrapped up in her onesies to prevent her from scratching herself due to her eczema; and now she has improved so much that she can be dressed in regular clothes and even participate in sports day events!
Emma was part of the group of the school’s youngest children: the Playgroup classes; and of course, it was super adorable to watch them go through their events. Some looked a little blur and some had stage fright, but Emma performed wonderfully….she told me exactly what she had to do and that she had to end her turn with a “high-five” on her friend.
Emma and her classmates had to emulate what the Letterland character Firefighter Fred would do: climb up a “wall”, scramble up a “ladder”, and then “put out a fire” with a water hose.
We really enjoyed the event and don’t you think the kids look exceptionally cute in the firefighter headgear?
After the event, she received her first-ever medal! Whee!!!
This time, for Sports Day, I also had backup photographers helping me out
