Field Day 2009

Today was Field Day at Mason and Dane's school. I was asked to be the "roving photographer" for the day. I ended up shooting 351 photos.

Dane's grade had the first part of the day to do the "Where's Bulldog?" activities. Mason was a helper for a first grade class so he got to be out for the first session too.

I had just enough time to come home for a sandwich and to down load my camera before I headed back. Mason's grade had the second half of the day for their activity time.

Somehow I ended up being in charge of the Field Day T-shirts. I got a teacher to do the art and a dentist to pay for the whole thing ($2,670)! (Every staff member and student got a free shirt!) I ordered white tees so we could let the classes decorate them.... or not. On Monday, I went in to Dane's class and showed them how to put rubber bands on their shirts. I brought the banded shirts home and dyed them. (I also invited all my friends that bought a shirt for themselves at cost to come over for a tie-dye party.) Mason's class wasn't going to do any thing more then sign each others shirts so I emailed the teacher. She agreed to a tie-dye plan. She had Mason show the class how to do the banding. I picked them up at the end of the day and brought them home for another round. I had left over dye so I heated it back up and got to work! Another Mom brought her two kid's entire class shirts over and we did them too! Whew! That was a total of 65 shirts, not including my own!

It was a long two nights of arts & crafts but the shirts turned out super cute!

Bonus photo- I took this shot of one of Mason's classmates. I really like the way it turned out so I thougt I would share. It has more to do with artsiness than field day!
