Preschool Winter Olympics

Today Cohen had Winter Olympics at First Friends.  The 3 and 4 year old classes compete in different games like the sack race, skipping, running in and out of cones, carrying an egg on a spoon, walking backwards, and racing on the small scooters we have.  They also get a chance to perform any trick that they choose.  We pull out the big mat and everyone does a "trick".  Some do fancy jumps, some do flips and cartwheels and some do things I'm not sure what it is but its cute! :)  We have been practicing with the kids over the last 2 weeks off and on.  Each child also makes an Olympic flag that they carry when they march in.  They say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing "God Bless America".  Its super cute to watch them.  Cohen had a ball even though I was worried she didn't feel very good today.  This crazy weather has left a lot of us with sinus problems.  Her favorite races were running in and out of the cones ("zig zagging" as she says) and the egg and spoon race.  We had a great turn out from all the parents and grandparents which is always nice.  I had Kelly snap a few pictures of Cohen since I was busy helping.  At the end of the Olympics we give medals out to each child and they are very proud to show that off!  Cohen has wore hers all day, even during her nap.  I'm very proud of my little Olympian!
