Field Day/ Happy Dance

At Cedar Tree, it was Field Day today.  Yesterday was graduation, with 6 seniors taking their place in the real world.
One last chance for handbells.
 Future babysitters, passing in the sunshine.
Team Tarantulas, planning their strategy.  They came in second.
There was even a beautiful quilt - although it's not mine, I had to take a picture of it.
Andrea, one of the Kindergarten moms, showing off the pieced strip on the backing.  Love it!  Maybe I'll have time to do some quilting this summer, after catching up on sleep.
And at Tertia's school, it was 5th grade welcome day.  The 8th grade girls dance class was a big part of the assembly.
 Each of the three groups was responsible for developing and choreographing its own routine.
 I am so proud of these girls for embracing my daughter's differences as something to be celebrated.
 Too blurry to tell much, but she does her part to hold up a team member.
 Precision timing and coordination.
And this was the end of the routine.  Pretty sweet!  Many thanks to Mrs. Ingalls for making her dance experience such a great and inclusive one.  Hard to believe she will be a high school student next fall!

Then the choir came in and sang "Let it Go" from Frozen.  Is it just me, or is that a fine song that has been a little ... overdone?  But I don't care, because school is over or nearly so, grading is finished, all but the data entry.  It's a lovely sunny day outside with a gentle breeze blowing.  It's past time to recover from a hard winter.
