Kids' Day '09

Wow! Finally, a break to sit down and play with some photos. I think I've been running since last Thursday and I'm ready for the weekend... I do not want to hear that this is Sunday, the start of the week, and I have to wait another 5 days.. lalalala I can't hear yooou!.

Anyway, Brian and Honor's school had Kids' Day last Thursday and it was a HIGHLY anticipated event (again) and another very successful day (again!). Everybody involved did a wonderful job. The day's activities were sponsored by Coca-Cola, the makers of Dasani water - they provided the T-shirts... how awesome is that? No, they aren't paying me(!), I just think the t-shirts, with screen print art contributed by a student, are a very nice touch.

Brian did not have as amazing a day as he did last year. Unfortunately he got hit by an asthma attack during the first event and had to take a break. Although he managed to get back into the games, he was worn down... not that you can tell by the photos in the slideshow below, but he was truly running on low steam. I think he managed to have fun anyway, and loved the free pizza provided by the PTO for lunch, as well as the 'waffle on a stick' I picked up for his dessert at the bagel stand on campus... I had never heard of this waffle on a stick thing, but Brian mentioned them to me when I said I was going there to get my lunch... and how could I refuse to get my worn down, but still trying to go, young guy a treat?? He even decided to stay late for his after-school activities. He wasn't ill, with a fever or anything, but the lack of oxygen can truly be mean to a kid. Oh, and he also broke his glasses. Not too big of a deal as we found the lens undamaged and got them repaired this weekend, but he likes them, so it was a sad moment.

Honor was at full steam and she and her class had a great afternoon. The younger set had slightly different activities in the afternoon than the older students, but they were equally active. I was amazed that Honor had energy enough to play more when we got home. Enjoy:

My son has asthma also and it just wears him out when he cant breathe. Looks like they had a blast and beautiful weather for it also! We have that day at the end of the school year....field day. They look forward to it all year long, probably because it means summer break is a day away!!!1

Their school definitely rocks! I wish mine had been like this too :) I remember having a "Field Day" in ?Junior High?, but it was nothing like this! The weather was nice and cool - unlike last years' event, which was also in February, but a HOT day.

I've only experienced asthma as a symptom (maybe twice?), but after watching those I love be affected by it... I can definitely say that I hate asthma!

Wow. I love their school, too! It`s cool.

That waffle dessert sounds neat and I think something like that is the perfect treat. Not like candy or something that is totally bad for you. Plus, Brian deserved it, poor guy.
