Grandparent's Day 2011

Several weeks ago was Grandparent's Day at Lindsey's school, Abilene Christian Schools. We enjoyed hanging out with her for the morning. She even had the grandparent who had come the farthest to see her at school this morning - her great grandpa Buchanan came from the Philippines. Well, he was coming home anyway, but got to Abilene just the week before so it counts. :)

The day started with a program in the gym. The lighting is always horrible in there plus I am getting used to a new camera. Sorry for the bad/dark pictures. You can kinda tell what is going on in them.

Lindsey patiently waiting for the program to get started.
Here is Lindsey's cheering section. Grandma Blasingame, Pops, Granddaddy, Reagan and Nana, Grandpa and Grandma Buchanan. We had a good group.
And the performance. Lindsey's class, along with some others, sang "Who Built the Ark?"
Lindsey's work that was set out on her desk for her to show family and friends. Her self-portrait in the middle. A cookie in the shape of Africa on the right. I don't remember what was on the left but it was highlighting her handwriting, I believe.
Grandma and Granddaddy looking over Lindsey's work.
Family picture in her classroom.
Lindsey showing Grandma and Nana her African project that she made. Her tie-dye shirts from the previous post.
And Lindsey with her self-portrait. Not sure why she drew herself with earrings because I'm pretty sure it will be a while before she gets her ears pierced. :)
Then we moved on to the Jog-A-Thon. It was fun. Just Pre-K and Kindergarten ran during her time. They encouraged the family and friends who were there to join the students in the running. Here's daddy and Lindsey jogging around.
Pops and Lindsey ran too.
During Nana's turn, Lindsey's class was encouraged to get a drink of water. That's where she was heading in this picture.
And of course, Reagan wanted a turn also. She did great!
Lindsey was the second girl in her class with 19 laps around the basketball court. She did wonderfully! And I think she even had fun.

After the fun was over, we ate some lunch and then headed to Oklahoma to see more grandparents for even more fun! It was Easter weekend and we had cousins to see and eggs to hunt. That post will be coming up next. Stay tuned!
