With just under four weeks until the summer holidays commence, the annual ‘end of term summer events’ are now well underway. Last week the children took part in ‘Sports Day’ and despite neither of them technically winning, they had a wonderful afternoon and in my eyes – they were both winners simply for taking part.
Having been sent numerous alerts from the Met Office warning of thunder, lightning and heavy rain, I was pleasantly surprised to see the sunshine come out for the afternoon. I was obviously so surprised that I forgot to apply sunscreen thus came home looking much-like a roasted beetroot.
Run Rabbit Run
This time next year it will be J’s last sports day in primary school. As always, I’ll be sure to be stood at the finish line cheering him on, proud of whether he comes first, second or last – his sheer effort and determination makes my heart swell with pride.
Excuse the bad quality of the above image – it was taken from quite a distance but still, it’s a memory!
It was great to watch the kids as they took part in a range of events, both their Nanas and their Dad also came along to cheer them on as they made their way to the finish line.
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
