Today was Field Day at Niamh and Philly's school. I hate field day. Well, I mean I love it~ but I hate it, too. It is so stressful. My hope is that both of them end up with a ribbon...even if it is a third place. It is not because I need to raise champions. I mean, if it happens by accident, that is fine. But, it's not why I stress/pull out my hair/freak-out on Field Day. I just know how much it means to each of them to receive a ribbon for doing great in one of the games.
Philly won first place in the tennis ball throw.
Go future Yankee dude.
Niamh did great, too.
She is awesome at the potato sack-jumping race.
She has won a ribbon every year for it.
In the final heat, and definitely clinching at least second,
she fell down and twisted her ankle.
And more tears.
My heart was broken for her.
Later in the morning, she quietly told me
I think Jesus knew someone else needed that ribbon today.
I am crying now just typing that.
Her heart is golden.
I made her a funny, little first place ribbon tonight.
For "Finding the Rainbow in the Rain."
She does that well.
And even though my homegirl can get some serious air time,
I am way more proud of her heart than her jumping skills.
I am not doing a Father's Day stamp this weekend.
Sorry if you were hoping for it.
I just did not have one planned.
But, I have this cutie.
Let's celebrate another school year ending...
