Field Day… or not.
So Marlena was supposed to have Field Day today at Camp Arrowhead. She was very excited about running races and winning prizes (maybe, as she kept adding). Sadly, there was rain, lots of it, so they just went on a nature hike and played on some camp playgrounds. What really annoyed me was the attitude of the camp personnel. Her school had a rain day on Monday, but there was a scheduling snafu and Monday is a half day, so they wouldn’t have been able to go at all. The principal therefore insisted they do what they could today, rather than miss out altogether, but the staff was pretty snippy about it. One would think they would be able to get past that to give a great day to the kids despite the disappointing weather, but we are not all adults, regardless of age.
Sadly there was more rain at the end of the day, so the kids had to leave a little early and ended up watching movies, but they did get a lot of running around time and outside time, and all in all Marlena had a lot of fun. She is such an adaptable kiddo, always good at figuring out a way to be happy with what she has. She gets a blue ribbon in my book anyway!
