Jacob's Field Day!

Jacob... you are all boy!!! You have so much energy and you are ready to play hard!!!

Krahn field day t-shirt... you are official.

Here are some of the 16 events:

This one was a relay to see who get get there bag empty first. It was filled with army men, boats, and airplanes. There were 5 kids on Jacob's team and all of them ran as fast as they could they did great!!!

Jacob and his friend/fellow class mate/cousin of our neighbor Jeffery.

When I asked Jacob what he was looking forward to the most about field day he quickly replied

"the snow cones!!!!" I am afraid you were sadly disappointed (not quite as he'd imagined) it was more like eating ice... not much flavor and no fun cone shaped cup.

Oh well you ate in anyway with out complaining.

That is one big giant earth ball... your team managed to push it through the maze with only knocking over a few cones along the way.

This was a fun one to watch you do... had to hurdle over and through a bunch of obstacles first then put on the sack and jump around the cone. You were the fasted kid out of your whole class on everything all day long. What I loved the most is that you had no idea what anyone else was doing you were just out to have fun and that is what you did!

On this hoppity hop ball you took off and did it so easily.

Your balance and physical strength is amazing. You are defiantly

our physically talented handsome man!

This one you balance the ball on the toilet plunger all the way down and back.

You started first (you always seemed to be the first one... maybe you were the team captain??? or maybe you just have a way of getting in there) you took off leaving everyone in the dust. You team can thank you for being so quick.

Bouncing balls off the parachute in the shade... a nice one to cool down a bit.

This was a fun one for team work. You were holding hands and had to get the hoolahoop over one person to the next all the way to the other end. This one was a little more tricky for your team.

Coordination!!!! This was tricky but you keep with it until you figured it out! Way to go Bubs.

You and Nore were the only two who were able to do doubles out of all the Kindergartners and 1st graders. Talk about TEAM WORK!!!

Way to go!!! (What an accomplishment)

To end it off right we joined Mrs. Zarella and all your class for a picnic lunch out on the field afterwards. Thanks to my dear friend Jana we ate well and had a great time being able to spend the whole time there to share in your excitement. (Next year I know what to expect and I'll be a little more prepared)

Jacob has been looking forward to this day so much. This morning in the shower he said with a big smile on his face "I can't wait to get to school!" I can see why... you played hard!!!! I am so grateful to be your mother and to have been able to share in your fun today! I love you handsome man. Love life, play hard, and live life to the fullest.
