Megan and her friend Samuel.
Megan and Carlie.
Cheering on the 5K runners.
Daniel wishing he was bigger. He wanted to run the race. Megan's teacher gave him a medal just for showing up. Joshua did not run the race because he his allergies have really been bothering him. He got a medal because he has run the track a few times already this week.
Daniel was so excited because we parked by the construction trucks. He wanted to go look around at them, but I didn't think it was such a good idea. He named them will all the Bob the Builder names (Scoop, Muck, and I can't remember any of the other names).
Between parking in the dirt parking lot and all the pollen all over the minivan, I decided to get a car wash when I filled her up today. I usually just wash my own car, but these days the time it would take me to haul everything out, wash the minivan (with my helpers) and put everything away - I'll gladly pay $5 and run the minivan through the machine. Especially when it provides this much entertainment. It was so funny watching Daniel trying to touch the water through the van window.
We went shopping for goodie bag stuff for Megan's upcoming birthday. The trend in her classroom is to transform the classroom into a birthday party. I talked with her wonderful teacher today about bringing in a healthy snack for after outside time. It's been so hot that I'm sure the kids would love some watermelon or strawberries or grapes when they come in from playtime. As far as Megan's actual birthday party, we've decided not to have a party this year. She'll give out goodie bags at school, provide the snack for that day, and we purchased a book to donate to the classroom library. We also picked up some fun educational place mats for our table at home. I bought the game Perfection and was intending to give it to her for her birthday, but she saw it on the counter and wanted to play it. She loves it. Joshua is really good at it, too.
