Part 1: Daddy Day Events
Miss K and Miss H set up a very cool event for Daddy (and Dude) Day at pre-school. They created an "Indiana Jones"-like obstacle course that we all had to go through, at the end of which we received a "treasure."
Ya gotta wash your hands when you get to pre-school!
Next came the deadly LION! You had to throw the bean bags through his mouth.
The last challenge was to swap out a bag of rocks for a bag of TREASURE on a scale.
Greeley tries to examine her treasure to see what's inside.
After it was all over, Gree went back to destroy
the mushrooms that had grown up through the mulch of the playground.
Part II: Ghost Stories!!
After everyone had completed the course, Greeley and Uncle Michael had made up their own little game using some plastic rings from one of the tasks. After a while some boys from the class who were playing their own game came near where Gree was chasing some rings and they started talking. Soon Gree, the natural leader (princess? or tyrant?) was leading a meeting (or perhaps class).
Uncle Michael got closer to see what exactly Greeley was sharing with them and found that she was explaining how ghosts were real and her personal experiences with them. "Once, when I was in P's backyard, I felt something on my hand but no one was there!"
I love her demonstrative hands and relaxed squat.
The boys may seem skeptical but they were rapt - and had their own stories.
Look at the expression on her face - wise beyond her years. "I'm just tellin' ya what I know, boys."
Eventually, she got them all to sit down like proper students.
Part III: Waiting for a Ride
UM and Gree stayed late at pre-school to play outside and later had to text Mommy to come get them. They sat in the lobby of the Y and amused themselves.
I find this picture amazing. I think it hints at what she's going to look like later in life while still capturing her round, baby-fat face. She has such beautiful hair (do you see those ringlets??) and eyes; if only her temperament were as lovely as her face. :)
This is a "gold" piece of "treasure" that Gree got for completing the obstacle course. (Gree was demonstrating how she can cross her eyes.)
