Over the last weeks both of the kids had their Spots day at school and Nursery and it was fun watching all those kids having fun and running races (and of course watch those eager and competitive parents cheer their kids on!)
Finns School always split the class up in 4 different coloured teams and they have to go through 5 different stations, from a stick race, sand sack on your head, between your knees and on your neck (on all 4s) right to the ancient old traditional egg and spoon race, sac race, hurdle race and this years new addition was a brilliant tug of war where we saw the boys/girls of the two Y1/Y2/Y3 classes competing against each other.
Finn really enjoyed himself, clowned around a bit and gave his best in the tug of war (which they unfortunately lost)! Overall i had a very happy but exhausting Year 1 Boy that day!
The Sun finally came out to play on his Sports Day which made it even more special and Mummy even got a bit of a sunburn!
Later in the week it was Molly-May’s turn to have her first ever Nursery Sports Day although the weather looked a little bit worse then at her big brothers day we didn’t let the cloud bother us and it was adorable seeing all those little ones run, craw through tunnels, hold their spoon (with the egg taped on) doing rolly polly’s and beam from ear to ear when they arrived on the finishing line.
When the heaven opened we moved with all the children and adults into the nursery where the kids sang us some songs and they had their congratulation handshake and medal ceremony before it finishes. It was a bittersweet first sports day because the owner of MMs Nursery (who already looked after Finn and i had the pleasure to be working alongside her as a emergency nursery nurse for a while) is retiring along with her 2. in command who is onto new ventures but thankfully the rest of the team alongside a new head from a local school nursery will be continuing her good work whilst she has some well deserved time off!
MM was very proud of her medal and enjoyed her winner sweeties on the way home in the car!
