Kindy 500 and Field Day 2007

Last week, the boys' school, along with many other Indiana schools, kicked off the Indianapolis 500 weekend with a Kindy 500 parade and races, and Field Day.

For the Kindy 500, the kindergartners all got to make and decorate cardboard box cars at home. They then had a parade at the school for parents and some of the classes.

Here is Ethan with his Pikachu-mobile.

Sophie enjoyed watching her big brother.

Emma had fun with some of her friends.

Ethan participating in the "bear-walk" race. There were several different races the kids formed teams to compete in.

Afterwards the kindergartners got cake and juice back in their classroom.

Later in the afternoon Elliott went back to the school to watch Andrew and his class participate in the annual Field Day. This year the theme was "Survivor", and each "tribe" got to choose their own costume and team. Andrew's class was "Mrs. B's Bandits"! Here they are attempting to conquer the tug-of-war.

I am not sure what this was called, but it looks difficult!

Those are all great pictures. And ditto on Ethan's classroom shot!

Yeah, that thing with Andrew and the other kid racing with the ball between them looks like it takes some pretty serious coordination.
