The Gallery - Sport

Last week we had our own kids sports day. I used to be a secondary school teacher and there is a reason for this! Trying to organise a large group of 4 and 2 year olds is very hard work - give me 32 teenagers any day. We had a few races and then they all had gingerbread medals that I made. Most were half eaten before we got a group photo! And here is my big man with his egg and spoon - his face just makes me smile!

Gingerbread medals as a great idea! I didn't know if the egg and spoon race still existed, but clearly it does. His really concentrating there x

These were my friends ones, they have a beanbag egg in!

Nicola Thomas said...

That is my sentiment exactly! I too am secondary trained as I couldn't cope with the total randomness of little ones! Great photo x

Louise said...

My friends think I am mad teaching a load of hormonal teenagers - but little ones are much harder if you ask me!

I miss the spors days, parents aren't allowed to go at the high school.

Louise said...

That's a shame. At the school where I worked they were allowed but not many parents went as they worked.

Great! I look forward to when my son has sports days. I don't envy trying to organise small children, herding sheep is easier.

fantastic picture, such concentration. I love the idea of gingerbread medals.

I love those sorts of sports days. My children's primary school did an Olympics sports day this year & had all the old favs - egg & spoon, 3 legged race, sack race etc. It was fun.

Brilliant picture, I can't wait for my future children to take part in sports days. I always have happy memories of sports days as a child so hope my children will too.

It was lots of fun - we did it with our friends after watching the excitement at the pre school sports day

Louise said...

I think I would find sheep pretty hard too!

Louise said...
