tail tales

At yesterday's kinder sport's day Amy's class did tail snatching. They had been practising by chasing each other around with plaited rope tails in the back of their pants taking turns being grabbers and grabbees.

Each day Amy came home telling us that Sota/ Takuya/ Haruka took her tail today and when it was her turn to chase she tried but she didn't get anyone's tail before the whistle blew. She didn't seem upset by this- it was just news.

Saturday it was parents with the tails on and kids chasing. As K is way more likely to take a picture of his thumb/ the wrong kid/ the lens cap than I am he was designated chasee as I captured the moment.

The teacher kept reiterating that the parents were to run fast and not give in easily.

Wasting her breath on K I'm afraid. Anything to make his kids happy.

The pursuit

The attack

The whistle's gone

Look at that face.

I think it was worth faking it, huh?

Awwww, that is so cute! (And the rain story.) Looks like you get our weather 24 hours before us, as it's shaping up to pour here. Just wondering if I can get another row of digging in before the heavens open...

what a good daddy K is!! Sometimes it's nice to win and I'm sure Amy didn't realise he was faking :)

You did a wonderful job capturing the moment btw!
