Pixel Bug Weekend--Undokai at Kindergarten

Photobucket


Last Saturday was Wakaba' s undokai event held at their school. My Mother-In-Law was with us to cheer up and give a boost to Wakaba. What I love about Japan' s Undokai ( Sports Day ) is the idea for the kids to work together as a team and supporting each other. The concept of team work and camaraderie is encouraged of the competition during the sports event. You' ll hear them saying ' Gambatte!!( do your best! )' It is fun to see kids to putting their efforts into something most especially Wakaba ( she really feel bad when she or her team is not #1 lol! ).My fave part at the undokai is the oyako undokai ( it is where parents can also participate in some of the games ). My husband and I participated the game and yes Wakaba and Haruka had smiles on their faces and so are we ^_^. It is also the time wherein I can make all their favorite foods together in a pack lunch box that is called obento here. I guess you have seen some of my homemade lunch pack that I made for my family for family outings and picnics. You can see last years undokai HERE

Hi Ate.. na-experience ko na rin mag attend ng undokai at masaya talaga. Pero di ko pa nakitang nagparticipate mga parents sa school ng brother ko. ANyway, di ko rin maimagine na nagpaparticipate Mom ko sa mga laro lol..

Grabe, i love your obento.. nakakagana kumain. Im sure napaka proud ng mga pretty girls mo sa yo. China-challenge tuloy ako ni hubby gumawa ng obento kagaya sa yo lol. Sabi ko naman, "daijyobu, chanto yaru kara.. blah blah blah"

Undokai talaga dito is all about teamwork. ENjoy ako sa mga photos mo as usual.. Napaka-serious ni Wakaba Chan sa mga games, that only means na otona na sya.. Gosh ilan years na lang at may dalagita ka na.. I love all the photos,especially the last one. They said it all, parang story talaga.

I like the last photo a lot. Sports-minded ang family niyo that's one way of bringing your family really close with in-laws too. Ang cute naman ng prinepare mong food. really creative.

Kudos to you and your hubs for really participating in your child's activity... that will be a great part of their childhood memories.
