Sam had a great time at sports day which also happened to be his 8th birthday! As he is still in lower primary the kids just have lots of fun activities to participate in, so next year is when the real fun begins & where they can start winning points for their house & going up for age champion which Sam is hoping for one day.... Jaimie was age champion three years running & in year 7 was House Captain & has her name on the school board... so he is aiming to join her! Some of the activities Sam participated in were high jump, long jump, hurdles, volley ball, soccer, tug-of-war, relay & the 100m sprint. He is such a sports freak he just does so well in everything, he is very, very competitive (like his dad :)) we have told him it's not always about winning, but about having fun & I must say this year he has shown a lot of maturity in this area & I'm very proud of him!
I will be back with his birthday photos after I pick the kids up from school... have to leave early to get a park close to the school as it's been pouring non stop all day.... it's so not going to be fun!!!!!
At morning tea, Sam's class sang Happy Birthday to him & he shared cupcakes with his class...
Yesterday, Wednesday 23rd was Tayla's sports day, it was overcast, windy & absolutely freezing!! No one wanted to be there, everyone just wanted to go home where it was warm!!! Tayla hurt her leg during trials for sports day before the holidays, so she didn't participate in too much, but she did run in the 800m & finished in the top fifteen which isn't too bad! high jump, long jump & shot put were the other activities Tayla had a go at... no 100m sprint though, I think doing the 800m was more than enough for her sore leg! I don't know that anyone really enjoyed themselves as it was just way too cold!!!
