It was Field Day today. Shot put (heavy balls), soccer kick (accuracy), 50 yard dash, free throws, broad jump, and lemon/spoon race. I was put in charge of 4th grade supervision, which ended up being a fairly easy job.
It was a fun day, but the sun came out pretty early, and made it pretty hot out there. I forgot to dress appropriately, so I was out there in long blue pants and a polo shirt. I was dying. After the first event, I wised up and called Julie and asked if she could bring me some shorts.
Irene, who has always been a bit unusual, just seemed to be on the spectrum. She was so excited about the day before we went out there. She got all worked up, so weird. After all was done she was crying because she didn’t place in any event. She even ripped her hat accidentally because she was so mad/sad.
After lunch there were the relays, by grade level. We squeaked out a 3rd place (out of 5 4th grade teams). A pretty fun day, but not much done achedemically. Oh well, 3 1/2 days left!
And I got a burn.
