Sports Day at Mills Haven Elementary

On Friday May 25th I took a vacation day and spent the day with Abby at her School for Sports day.  I was in charge of the Obstacle Course with a couple of other parents.  What a great day!  The kids and staff were so awesome.  Abby's team was the Rangers and they did great!
The K-Grade 3 kids were split into 9 teams.  Each team went through the 9 stations throughout the day:
1. Ball relay (Hold ball in legs and run)
2. Football toss (Throw football through hanging hoops)
3. Sock race (Put on crazy socks and relay race)
4. Suitcase relay (put on a bunch of crazy clothes and relay race)
5. 100 Metre Dash
6. Sponge relay (Get all the water from one bucket to another using sponges)
7. Potato Sack relay (Jump into a potato sack and race)
8. Obstacle Course (an obstacle course set up in the playground - My Station)
9. Rest Station (Kids got cookies and water and got to draw on the sidewalk with chalk, blow bubbles and do some skipping)

Here are some pictures from our great day:

Abby and I had such a great day that we didn't want it to end so we decided to go for ice cream. It was some great Daddy Daughter time!
