Hello dear ones, I hope you are well. Two years ago we had our first Family Olympics. You can find the link here: http://amberdover.com/2013/07/07/my-family-rocks-sunday-2013-family-olympics/
This year we spent Independence Day having our second Family Olympics. I also have July 4th crafts to share with you. Here we go :).
We made 4th of July T-shirts.
Michael and Chris tie dyed a red, white, and blue shirt.
I used Leeland’s hand print and craft sticks to make this U.S. flag onesie.
Then Michael made me a red, white, and blue necklace out of beads.
We also did a state lapbook. Link here: http://www.currclick.com/product/76669/United-States-Alabama–Speedy-Lapbook
We used index cards to keep score. Here are the events:
My Step Dad Kim
- Foam Sword fighting
Me and Mom~ This was fun, but a word to the wise…make sure you zip up the trampoline if you use it. When Michael and I were sword fighting he actually fell through the unzipped part of the trampoline screen. Thankfully he didn’t hit his head too hard. It was scary though.
- Airplane Toss
- Egg Race
- Sac Race
Then just for fun:
- Parachute games
- Michael’s 4th grade piano recital. He played The Star Spangled Banner and Amazing Grace.
All of us won at least one medal, but Kim won the trophy.
God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
