Sports Day

With all the activities over the weekend, I had forgotten to do a post on Aidan's Sports Day, which he had on Friday. Today we got sent some more photo's from the even from one of the other Mums, so I decided now would be as good a time as any to add them here. Aidan was part of the Red Rockets team, and had his face painted appropriately.

The great thing about Aidan's sports days is that all the parents and siblings are expected to participate as well. As you can see, Anth got into the whole deal, sticking out her tongue for what I think is the egg and spoon race. Notice how gracefully she carries Callum whilst dragging Aidan along beside her. Marvel at the gazelle like beauty of her stride. Is it any wonder that she won? Well, maybe she didn't win. Its participation which makes the best sports people isn't it?

There was even a cheer squad. Grandma came down especially for the occasion, and she and Callum led up the clapping squad. Grandma got to hold Callum during Aidan's solo performances. It looks like a fun day was had by all, and I know that Aidan's highlight wasn't just doing running, but having a sausage at the sausage sizzle after all the athletic activities.

Ciao for Now, Red Rocket Angry Dad.
