Having a blast at his school's field day. I was so excited that his new school does this as I have very fond memories of end of the year field days from my days in elementary school. I volunteered to help and got to man the miniature golf. They also had an obstacle course, tug-of-war, splash basketball, jump rope contest, frisbee throwing and much more.

Three more days of school and Jake will officially be promoted to second grade! He has done so well in school this year. I am so proud of all he has accomplished, I just wish I knew where the year had gone. It flew by!
