Favortie Photo Friday ~ Teeny Tiny Field Day



Teeny Tiny for sure but great big fun! Yesterday was Abigail's Preschool Field Day/Family Picnic!

Boy was she ever excited. She must have said 1,000 times "mommy, it's not about winning and it's not about loosing; it's about having FUN!"

I picked up Anna for the event. (the more events that are about "family" that we can take her to the better for her... still trying to cement in her that we are a family forever)

There was the jumpy ball. She had that thing going!

Then there was the 'walk on stilts' and the egg drop. She was slow as molasses on these; the teachers kept telling her to take bigger steps. She did NOT want to drop that plastic egg!

Love her expression on the right. Really getting into it!

And her ponytail was flying during the sack race


but my favorite photo was this one... muscles (finally in size 4t as a new 5 year old) pulling that rope during tug of war. She was mighty and strong; and oh so cute!


Just a few more from the tug of war

So proud

But her favorite part of all was having her whole family there to see her!


Mrs. Giddings announced to the parents at the end that her favorite part of field day was "watching Anna, Abigail's big sister, cheer and clap for her." Love that!

And then a picnic. A fun morning for sure, and another memory to tuck away and save. I have oh so many that will bring a smile to my face for years and years to come.
