Go, Team, Go!


Today is Play Day at the boys' school. Jackson's class (1st grade) is representing Ireland; Carter's class (3rd grade) is representing the U.S.A.; and Taylor's class (5th grade) is representing Japan. Their teachers asked them to wear the colors of their country's flag. We don't have a bunch of kelly green or orange shirts hanging around the house, so this was my compromise. Appliqued flag shirts. (Carter's class decorated white tees in class with red and blue hand prints of each class member.)

So all day today (and I do mean all day) you will hear me yelling "Go Ireland!" and "Go Japan!" and lots of "U.S.A! U.S.A!" And lots more of "Go, Jackson!" (who is running the 400 meter) and "Go, Carter!" (who is also running the 400 meter, why do they do this to me?!?) and "Go, Taylor!" (who doesn't know what he is running but wants to run the 800 meter). It's all good.
