Oldest Son had Math Fair last week. There were about 8 stations set up where the kids rotated through as a group to solve various math challenges. Parents were invited and quite a few attended. It was very nicely executed and the kids enjoyed themselves.
Last Friday, English Diplomas were distributed. In a morning assembly, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place students were announced and received a certificate. Not surprisingly, Oldest Son received a 1st place in English. He was very excited. Spanish diplomas had been distributed the prior week. I was glad to see the flag ceremony that I believe is done every Friday.
Family Sports Event
On Sunday, we were invited to a sports gathering from 9-11. All we really knew was that the boys needed to wear blue.
Upon arrival, we notice all the children have their bikes. Umm, why? Apparently, there is a bike race. Off Husband goes to get bikes.
Then I notice, ALL the adults have on sneakers. Okay, in Mexico, the women rarely have shoes on without a 2 inch heal - at least. Apparently, there are parent events too. I call Husband and ask him to bring sneakers for us too.
We seem to average knowing about 80% of information on any given school situation. However, it was a super morning. Beautiful setting and lots of fun events like:
- Bike race (Oldest Son had fun despite a wipe out)
- Soccer games (kids 1st then adults)
- Ping pong (paddle was a small block of wood with Velcro hand strap)
- Obstacle course events (relays, foot races, zig zag course)
- Water balloons (always popular)
And the finale was a chicken tamale lunch for 10 pesos! (less than $1 USD)
