"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Teddy Bear Triathlon

The Teddy Bear Triathlon at Preschool was this past Saturday. We weren't sure if we were going to get to participate with all the rain the forecast was calling for, but thankfully the clouds held out and we were able to go! Carson was excited to wear his Teddy Bear Triathlon t-shirt!
When we arrived at the school, the parking lot was all roped off and the course for the "triathlon" was set-up. The kids got to ride their bikes all around until it was time to call each age group for their own race. Carson loved watching all of the other bikers too.
Before the race began, they had the parents repeat a sweet prayer, with their child, that was given by one of the church members. The kids thanked God for holding off the rain, and just prayed in general for their fun time. It was one of the sweetest things!
Carson high-fiving one of his classmates...
Daddy gave him instructions on how the race would go. Carson listened very carefully!
On your mark....get set....
The kids ran to their bikes. Daddy helped Carson get his bike helmet on so he could continue on...
Then he was off on his bike, rode through the sprinklers, and headed to the finish line...
Finish line!!
All of the kids received a medal. So proud of our little man!
Carson and Tanner cheered Hannah on from the sidelines during her race too!
Carson even ran out into the race to give Hannah a thumbs up and tell her "Great job!"
Our two super-star triathletes...
After all the children raced, the teachers had their own scooter race. Hannah's teacher was one of the racers, as well as a friend from our church. They did a great job and the kids loved watching them!
We visited Scoops, the Bruester's Ice Cream mascot, while we were there too! We had such a fun morning with our family and preschool buddies, and are so thankful for such great teachers and staff!
