They boys were SUPER excited about field day this year!
First mission, find purple shirts, we were fresh out of anything with even a hint of purple in our closets, go figure. :) But, when you are in the Purple Den, you need a purple shirt.
The students are all divided into dens with students off all ages and they do lots of activities and competitions throughout the year with their dens, field day being one of them. Thankfully families are put in the same den so we get to watch the brothers and cousins compete together!
The morning started with dens rotating through activities coordinated by the upper grades. It was so fun to watch the older kids lead and encourage. They did such a great job!
Burrrrr, how many coins and marbles can you retrieve from the ice? This was the last activity for the purple den before lunch and they loved it!
New fan recruits arrived. :)
After the morning festivities inside different classrooms it was time for lunch and the outside portion of the day. We left after lunch so Aunt Angie captured the rest of the pictures.
The next round of activities were den against den.

The biggest hit of the day was the ice cream truck. These two twines love them some sweets!
I always marvel at the mess these two can make!
and then the much anticipated SHAVING CREAM FIGHT!!
They had looked forward to this for weeks!!!
the giggles were endless
and then the 3rd grade...a bit more intense
THANKS for another fantastic field day!
