Granny stayed with us during crazy week and she was such a huge help! We are so glad she was able to spend the week with us and attend the kids' activities. It just so happened that on Friday she was dressed to match Madeline's Buddy Day shirt.
The outdoor activities were soccer, bowling, basketball, jump rope and having fights with pool noodles.
Madeline's "buddy" for the day was Addison.
The girls said they wanted to make hearts because "they love each other."
Because of the rain they put inflatables in the cafeteria and gym.
Have you ever heard of Osmo? I had never seen one of these things, and they are SO cool!
When it was time for the classes to move to the next activity, they'd play music like "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" and "Who Let the Dogs Out." The kids would go NUTS and it was so funny to watch them dance.
After Buddy Day was the End of the Year party. I bought foam frames and put a class picture in it. Each student got a frame and a sharpie, with instructions to sign each others frames. It went better than I expected, because it took lots of time and they were quiet. :) It was almost like a scavenger hunt for them, trying to find out whose names were missing. Some of the kids asked me to sign their frames, which I thought was cute. I truly enjoyed getting to spend time with them this year.
For lunch they had pizza, fruit, chips and cookies. After lunch, Mrs. Boyd put on a movie for them until it was part 2 of Buddy Day (face painting, sno cones and dunking Dads in the dunk tank). I had to leave, but word on the street is that they had a great time!
