P.E. Night and Spirit Week
Nathan and Autumn's school had Spirit Week a few weeks ago... I am just blogging about it now (oops!). During Spirit Week, they have a P.E. Night where parents can come and watch to see what their kids have learned in P.E. class.
They had the younger grades run several laps around the gym, Nathan LOVES to run right now. He wants to run a 5K, but I feel we should properly train for it and when I looked up the date of the Color Run, it wasn't a weekend that we had open. So, I am really hoping perhaps they will do another Color Run in the Fall like they did last year and it'll be a date we can pencil in to run together.
Nathan has a great P.E. teacher, she really works with these kids and I was amazed at some of the gymnastic abilities some of them had throughout the night.
Autumn and her little friend during P.E. night... they will both participate in it next year when they are in Kindergarten.
Then, for Spirit Week they dressed up differently for each day:
Monday: Hat Day
Tuesday: Stuffed Animal and PJ Day
Wednesday: Tie Day
Thursday: Black and Gold Day. They also asked for the kids to donate items to different places each day of Spirit Week, this day it was socks/booties.
Friday: Story Book Character Day. Nathan is Captain Underpants and Autumn is a pink poodle.
And, it was also the 100 Day of School that week (YES, it was a crazy busy week. Whew.)
Nathan had to do a 100 Day of School project at home, so I used what we had at home... We had a lot of seed packets leftover from last year, so I had him pick out 10 different seeds and then he glued them in groups of ten on poster board and labeled them.
Autumn's class did a 100 Day of School trail mix, I only had to bring in pretzels. Easy peasy!
They also let the kids bring in games for their Team Meetings they have on Wednesdays and I saw this adorable photo of Autumn playing marbles on the school FB page.
