I was one of those kids growing up who just didn't love Field Day. Pretty sure Lex got that gene from me.
Grace and Zac on the other hand, LOVE field day! They are athletic, competitive and fast!
(which equals lots of ribbons won, something I never experienced!)

*Even more important than field day are the friends that your kids choose. I have found that you can teach them all you can as they are growing up in your home. But about high school (even as you continue to teach and guide them) a BIG part of their lives are their friends. Choosing good friends is one of the biggest decisions your kids can make! Keep snacks and treats around for when they "drop" in. Always make your home available for them to play games, watch movies and such. It makes such a huge difference. Of all of my childrens friends, including Alexa's, our house is probably the smallest of all of them. But do you know who's house they almost always ended up at to hang out? Yep, the smallest one . . . . ours.
I LOVE having them over and welcome them, hungry boys and all!!*
