On Friday Holly had her last sports day at preschool and it was the cutest day. We was very excited about it, as she had been practising in the week and I dropped her off at 9am in the shorts and t-shirt.
Later that morning Andy and I went along to watch. There is always a picnic afterwards and we laid out our picnic blanket ready to watch her. As they all walked out, their little faces all turned looking and searching for the person that had come to watch them.
It took Holly a bit of time to spot us, but once she did the biggest smile came across her face and she was so excited to see us. She spent the whole time waving at us and telling her friends her mummy and daddy were here. It was just the cutest.
They were in teams and Holly waited patiently for her turn, you could tell they had been practising because they all knew what to do, which is pretty impressive for 3 and 4 year olds.
When it was her turn, up she jumped, gave us a quick wave and then got on her spot. They did an obstacle course, a potato and spoon race and a running race. Holly is the runner out of my girls and she was quick. But she was more worried about waving at us!
After they had all finished they had mummy and daddy races, which both Andy and I did. I really didn’t want to, but then I reminded myself how much it would mean for Holly to see us to do it.
Once all the races had finished they had a leavers presentation for all the little ones leaving this summer to start big school in September. They all sat on the mat and sang us a song they had been learning. Holly sang loud and proud, as she had been practising a lot at home. They were each given a certificate and it was very cute.
Then is was picnic time and we all enjoyed a picnic together and Holly was chatting away telling us everything she had done. Like we hadn’t seen her do it, aren’t they funny!
It was a lovely morning and yes, there were a few moments that I couldn’t believe this was her last preschool sports day. It only seems like yesterday we were sat there for last years sports day. Where has my baby gone.
