Haruka's Undokai

Haruka's first Undokai or Sport's Day was somehow sad coz their Daddy is on the job but the truth is he was supposedly off on the said event ( he asked for a day-off weeks ago ) but he received an emergency call in the evening before the undokai so he has to work halfday to be able to attend even for the last minute knowing that the undokai will end after lunch. Secondly, my PIL wasn't able to attend coz my MIL is still in the hospital for the nth time(T_T) however, she did call to give Haruka some boost and encouragement.
This is my 3rd year to observe Undokai or Sport's Festival of my kids. First was Wakaba's First Undokai in Kindergarten, then Wakaba's 2nd undokai , and Wakaba's Sport's Day at Primary School and now it's Haruka's turn! How time flies!!! Well, anyway I prepared some homemade bentou requested by Haruka for us to take for lunch. We went at school right in time and enjoyed ourselves and had a great time. Haruka participated most of the game and she loves it most especially the parent-daughter/son tandem game. It's a lot of fun to participate games with my kid! The game includes tug-of-war, tama ire ( where the kids had to shoot some balls into the basket ), relay races and pass the button relay and a somewhat ' finding ' or 'hunting race' . The kids picked up cards that had things they had to find then they bring to the finish line. Wakaba and some first graders also participated games like pan kui where the kids must grab a piece of bread hanging without using their hands. They were given notebooks as prize for particpating the game, Haruka and the kindergarteners were given a medal.
All in all, it was a success except for some occassional rain and I'm looking forward to next year's undokai--this time with their Daddy and Grandparents. ^_^
Homemade bentou requested by Haruka: Nikumaki Onigiri ( rice wrapped with seasoned beef )

Haruka, marching with a smile!
Getting nervous??

Cute ni Haruka! Nakangiti pa habang tumakbo. Love to see how kids play, wala pang halong pag aasam na manalo, just plain play.

Is your hubby a nurse?
