MCA has an annual event for Lower School, Kite Day. Luke was SUPER PUMPED about this special day mainly because he'd never flown a kite before. (are we terrible parents for him having never flown a kite???) Anyway... it was SUPER cold, but that didn't stop PK5 from having a blast :)
(Luke's peeking out from behind the giant butterfly kite... doesn't it look like a gorgeous day?!?!? hahaha)
Luke picked out a Leonardo Ninja Turtles kite (can you tell he went with Daddy to pick it out???? hehehe), and I took about 37 pictures of him and he wasn't looking at me (or giving me a genuine smile) in a single one. Homeboy is yet to realize that if he would look and smile nicely the first time, it wouldn't take us 8 minutes to take pictures!
The Pre-K kids were all paired up with a fifth grade buddy and Luke got Maddie Grace! Apparently Luke was in high demand... as his teacher received SEVERAL text messages from fifth graders wanting Luke to be their partner :) Love that the big kids at school love my little guy :)
I think that he and Maddie are a great match solely based on their hair... I mean, seriously... have you ever seen two kids with more hair?!?!?! :)
... and they were able to get Luke's kite going on their first try.
There were several 8th graders helping out as well and Dave and I were cracking up because at one point Luke had 7 students "helping" him fly his kite :)
Pre-K flew their kites for about 30 minutes and then they sat with their buddies to watch Kindergarten fly theirs. Again, Luke, with the picture taking. I didn't feel like subjecting his sweet partner to my 4000 pictures in an attempt to get a "real smile", so I just settled for this one. You can tell that he's totally uncomfortable with the "big kids", right?
And here are a couple of scrapbook pages I made with pics from the day:
