I always find that the younger kids seem to get more out of Olympiad. They get so excited and try so hard to be the best they can be. It doesn't matter to them if they are first or last, it only matters that they are having fun. And while I love going with all of my children I find I also get different things out of the day with the different age groups. With Allie's group I felt so much joy!!! They all love each other so much at 6 and 7 years old. Thanks for the great day guys :)
The day began with a walk from our school to the french school.
The first event of the day was the sprint. Go Allie Go!!
Goofing around with her hat while she waits to skip.
Look Mom it's on backwards!!
See what I mean about the love and the joy in the young ones?
Skipping, and looking adorable but distracted while doing it!
Love the look on your face sweet one!
Ok I know I probably got a little carried away with the skipping pictures but hey it's my blog :)
Lol this one looks like a classic self portrait pose for facebook!!! In reality she is talking away to me as I take pictures.
Love this proud of herself grin and the little gap between her two front teeth. Family rumor is that my maternal grandmother had a gap between her two front teeth that embarrassed her. She wouldn't smile without holding her hand over her mouth to hide it!!!
Best Buds. Mine is the tall one but it makes me laugh that the small one is the ring leader!!
Backwards medicine ball toss.
I am not sure why I took this picture but I couldn't resist posting it.
Standing long jump, she nailed her landing :)
This is as she is about to jump as is the one below.
I love you Allie!!! I am so glad you wanted to share this day with me.
