|Getting ready to go to the Fall Festival|
The entire week before it happened, the school touted the upcoming school festival. They said there would be games, and food, and a book fair. And my son was excited! A festival meant Ferris Wheels, rollercoasters, and The Scrambler. Right? Wrong. :)
He was a little disappointed when pulled up to the 'festival' to see that it was none of the above (except the book fair, of course). But! Sometimes the best kind of fun comes from unexpected fun, and that's exactly what happened at the school festival.
The first thing he did was try his hand at miniature golf:
He moved the ball with his hand to get a better shot, and I told the guy running it that that's how 'dad' beats 'grandpa' at golf. Everyone thought that was funny...except one person (which made it even funnier).
|There Was Face Painting|
|And there was bowling...with pumpkins (not real, of course).|
|There was also a bean bag toss.|
|See that face? This was serious stuff!|
There were a lot of things to do, and there was a big turnout! A LOT of support going on...for the school. I love that.
The very first thing my son said when I woke him up for school was, "Gueeesss what, today is the festival!" And the last thing he said that night was, "The festival was sure a good idea." I'm really glad he had fun. Kudos to the school for a fun Fall event.
