Sports Day

Last Thursday the primary school in our little village held their sports day at the football field not far from our house.  Little T and her other friends who will join the said school come September showed their support by showing up at the event.

The only problem though, they decided that it was more fun to play at the playground which was right beside the football field.

Here’s little T being pushed on the swing by her best friend F …

… while their other friends were busy on the merry-go-round.

Next year though will be different.  They won’t be allowed to play at the playground on sports day.  These little ones will actually be included in the event!  How time flies.  It’s bittersweet actually.  Part of me feels she’s growing up way too fast, but the other is excited for her to join “big school” because I know she will certainly enjoy it.

And the sunshine continuous!

Have a lovely weekend folks! 🙂

    Dean, she’s getting so big! I can’t believe how she’s grown this past year!

    • I know! And she’s actually starting “proper” school this September. Somebody hit the emergency brakes please, it’s happening way too fast! Was this how it was with Mr T?

        Mr. T started kindergarten just yesterday! Lol. Once they start school, I think the years speed up 🙁

    My son will start proper school this September as well. I am so excited! So many things that had happened to him when he started preschool. Mostly good like being more sociable and friendly! Cant wait for what the new school will bring =) #countrykids

    • That’s great! 🙂 Excited too for T, but also a bit sad, it feels like they are all growing up way too fast!

    Wow, so lucky. My sons school don’t seem to have one because they don’t have any grass areas or any close by Looks like the perfect day for it #countyrkids

    It is a difficult time for parents isn’t it. I think the secret is to just try to enjoy each and every moment,, and the memories will last a lifetime.

    She is going to love it, I’m sure. It’s amazing how much they grow up in that first year too. Slow down! #CountryKids
