Week of Activities

What a week! Holden's preschool class has had a jam packed week of activities.
Monday and Tuesday were busy talking about the exciting things everyone is doing this summer.
Wednesday, was our Bearamy Party at Build-A-Bear. Our party was suppose to start at 10:00 am, (when the mall opened). Mrs. Jan made reservations weeks ago and sent out invitations to each child for the party. Well, we all showed up at 10:00 and the store was not open. Along with 2 other employees we waited, and waited as you can imagine 14 3 & 4 year old's do NOT wait patiently! We were waiting on the manager with the only key to open the gate...thankfully Northpoint Mall has a play center, so the kids could play while we waited. I really was not thrilled about this, since I ALWAYS avoid the play center because it just screams...GERMS! However, we did not have a choice. After waiting until 11:15, yes, an hour and 15 minutes later, the manager showed up, our party started! The kids were so excited to get their very own Bearamy! If you have not been to Build-A-Bear, let me tell you, it can cost a small fortune to make a bear and buy an outfit. Lucky for us, since the manager was so late, everyone was allowed to choose whatever bear they liked and a shirt, on the house. I would hate to have to be the one who explains why 14 kids received them for free. After everyone finished their bears, we enjoyed lunch and a Carousel ride.

On Thursday, the class participated in Field Day. Let's see, they got to do so much:
-Chalk, bubbles, & a bean bag toss
-Relay Race, trying to make a goal off Ms. Jan, Sack race, & running around the field
-Hot Potato with Ms. Mary Anne
-Crafts with Ms. Patty
-Tattoo fun and Popsicles
Whew! Then the presentation of the ribbons.

Everyone did a great job and had lots of fun! (The pictures were sent from school so here is the link to Shutterfly if you would like to see all the fun!)
