School Olympics 2016

This year's school Olympics was held in the gymnasium on May 19th.  It rained  the day after that so the plan of having it outside was not possible as it was very wet outside.  It turned out  great because it was a bit chilly ou0t that day and it's more comfortable inside for all of us.
 EJ is very competitive so he always look forward for this event.  It is a nice  way of ending the school year, to have all the adrenaline  poured out by playing  games.  I am glad that the school does this.  IT reminds me of my childhood, we used to have an annual intramural in school and it was a lot of fun.  Our intramural  takes one week because we have so many  sporting events being participated by all students.  
 He reached the finished line  first on the 50 meter dash  but was disappointed that he was  named second lol.  I told him it is okay, as long as he had fun, that's all that matters.  
 He was on the top three of every game he participated into so he was very happy.
 Rylie just want to have fun  during school Olympics so she doesn't really care if she wins or  not.  Surprisingly, she won third place on the spoon race.  
 She had a blast playing with her classmates.  It's  fun to see smiling faces during the  Olympics.
The kids are now enjoying their school break.  We plan on going on long walks again now that they are off from school.  We started today, we went  to Starvaggi park and played tennis then came back.  So we walked 2.8  miles today.

  7. It had to be far more comfortable having the event indoors as opposed to outside with the weather conditions you shared at the opening of the post. The children all seemed to have such a great time participating in the variety of activities.
