Birdie’s class valentines party was this past Tuesday. Loads of fun! Those kids=happiness. I walk in the room and one of Bird’s classmates says ‘Hi! Are we playing games at the party?!’ Why yes we are buddy!
We started out with some games at the kids’ tables. I found all the games on Pinterest.
Bingo using conversation hearts for markers.
I spy valentines edition.
Pass the tissue paper heart without ripping it using a clothespin. How many times did we have to remind the kids to not clip the clothespin on their noses or other body parts?!
A relay game where the kids had to run to the other end of the gym, pick up a heart and do whatever it says on the way back. Skip, hop like a bunny, walk like a bear. They were cheering and yelling so loud! I thought the principal would come by to see what the commotion was!
The rest of our Valentine’s Day was nice too.
Sunday afternoon Birdie had a basketball game. Her team played so much better than last week. They actually played like a team. They tied 10-10. I figured out I’m going to be one of those moms that can’t contain themselves during a close game. Since these are all of Bird’s schoolmates I do cheer for all the teams, but man those kids are really good at making the ball ride around the rim and getting it in like 50% of the time! My heart was racing for most of the 24 minute game (that counts as cardio right?! ;))
Speaking of cardio, Saturday I treadmilled 4 miles in 53:38 minutes and Sunday Birdie joined me in the below workout I found on Pinterest, which I adapted for my fitness level. During the treadmill portion the treadmill was set to 5.0 mph.
