Amy's observation day in pictures

Observation day today. The last one for kinder. Ever!! Wow.

First we watched them do a clapping game. Amy's partner is the class bad boy. He of the lightening bolt hairstyle she wanted to copy... Super happy Amy. Not so thrilled Daddy!


Then it was morning announcement time and rollcall and I swear it is a coincidence that Amy is sitting between two teachers. No really!


Next it was plaiting time. The parents were supposed to sit behind their kids and help them get the hang of plaiting by doing it together. Only Amy has been plaiting for about a year now and was not going to let us help her so K and I sat there and smiled while Amy plaited. Did I mention that she likes doing very intricate plaits so we were sitting there for ages after everyone else had finished while Amy's pedantic plaiting drew an increasing audience...


Then it was time to wind string round and round a bunched up piece of fabric in order to prepare for tie-dying the class koinobori flying carp for Children's Day. This is another incredibly intricate undertaking and Amy had a ball while yet again K and I were relegated to 'stand over there and don't get in my way' duty.

Lunchtime and the little boy next to Amy was so cute and kept jumping in the pictures.


Bowing before eating. I love how reverent Amy's bow seems and then her neighbour is doing some kind of inverted bow?


And that was it. They send the parents home while the kids are still eating to minimise crying.

The last observation day ever, for kindy. Then congratulations. : ) Job well done.

I love Amy's hair, those french braids are so cute.

Hmm since they're near the same age, now you got me wondering how many observation days Noah has left. My guess would be 3 more. The daddy's observation day where all the mothers show up anyway one. lol. And the Fall one. Plus not counting the upcoming ensoku where all us parents will go. Or the Fall/autumn sweet potato dig. Many more things for me I guess. The last year for us Heather. : )
