field day 2011!

Today was the little pumpkin's first field day...another sweet milestone!As silly as it may sound, I'm going to be transparent here and say that as I was driving her to school this morning I was a bit teary-eyed. There's just something about experiencing all these milestones with your firstborn that makes you realize time is so very fleeting. It feels like just yesterday I was bringing home this tiny little baby and now her first year of school is almost over. *sniff, sniff*

Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels like this, am I? I did keep it together out on the field so as not to embarass her - HA!

Her class minus one.
(McKinley, we missed you! Feel better SOON!)

Scenes from field day...1. "Wow, that's a lot of ribbons!"
2. Hudson tries an unpeeled apple for the first time.
3. Our little preschooler.
4. "Mama, I need fast shoes for field day. These are the perfect fast shoes."
{first pair of athletic shoes...bought the day before}

In line for the opening ceremonies...
(love the anticipation!)
Picnic with family & friends...First up...Egg Race Relay!
Grace is the last player for her team...Blue Team wins - Yay!!!
Her favorite event...The Tricycle Race! Time to head outside for the Pony Race!
{"Mama, it's not the 'Pony Race', it's called galloping"...well, excuse me!}
After the Baton Relay and the Bean Bag Pick-up/Drop-off Race, it was time for the Kangaroo Hop - my favorite! Sooooo cute!!! Blue Team with their ribbons!
(Grace, Julien, Solomon, Emma, Kennedy & Ruby)
We're so proud of you, Grace!!!
Thank you for the popsicles, Emma & family!! With her sweet teacher, Mrs. Bryan... Celebrating with Lovi, Noonie & Hudson!Out before we even got out of the parking lot! ;)What a fun day!
Way to go Bryan's Bears!!

So darn cute. No, you aren't the only one who cries at those things. I am still crying, and this time it is for my grandchildren!

I get the most emotional at the end of school. My friends never seem to understand. I warn my hubby before we go to the end of year program I will boohoo-- and those poor teachers who have to deal with me at the eoy confrences. You will be so glad you have soaked it all in and have great photos. I'm off to hunt down some fast shoes too!

My oldest is 13, and there are still milestones that bring tears to your eyes. It never ends honey.

I love the picture of Grace sleeping!

Grace! You were so fast in all your races!!!!!! I'm so proud of you! See: I told you that drinking your milk (for strong bones) and eating your meats (good proteins for your muscles) would make you strong and fast. Good work!
Love, Noonie
