Sport's Day

Today was School Sport's Day, despite the dire forecast the rain held off until well after it had finished, even though the grey clouds loomed most of the afternoon. 

Little Prince did very well as usual, as far as I can remember he came 1st in his flat race and in the obstacle race, his team came 2nd in the relay race and he came last in the "bean bag race."  After his hard running afternoon, he then stayed behind for his usual Tuesday Taekwondo Club, and came home with a reminder that he was invited to a TKD Grading this evening!  So after a quick tea and rest, he was back out to the Village Hall to have a training session and then do his Grading Test.  I went to pick him up 2 hours later, and watched him receive his next belt (yellow belt with green tab).  We are so proud of his achievement, especially after such an active day :-)
Princess Lollipop also ran at Sport's Day, her very first one :-)  The Nursery children all run three races - flat race, tennis bat and bean bag (egg and spoon for littlies) and hat and bag race (run put on a hat, run again and pick up a bag, run to the finish).  Princess Lollipop ran fast, but as she started late every time she didn't win - although according to her she "WONNED" her "waces" :-)  She enjoyed it so much she wants to do it again tomorrow :-) 

Well done Little Prince and Princess Lollipop, I'm glad the sun shone on  your efforts and that you both had so much fun :-)
