As the end of the school year quickly approaches, our little Rosie was invited to take part in the Kindy 500 at her school! The children were asked to make a "box car" for the race! My girl knew exactly what she wanted.....sparkly pink with a silver stripe! Oh, and the number 6 on it...because everyone knows that 6 is the best number! She and daddy worked three afternoons on it! When race day arrived, we congregated in the gymnasium to meet the drivers!
I made a beeline to meet the driver of car #6! She looked smart, small and very aerodynamic! When asked for an autograph she said, "You're funny, mom!" After a few pics, I made my way to the stands for the race!
After sizing up the opponent, I placed my bets on #6. She looked fierce with double braids, pink tennis shoes and a megawatt smile!
They were just one stride apart.....
When he pulled ahead in the turn! It was a close one, but #6 was a great sport and never stopped smiling.
The group race was another story! With 40 racers on the floor....car #6 broke away from the girls and pulled into the front of the pack...
With ALL the boys! That a girl, Rosie-Roo.
The racers crossed the finish line where cold milk was waiting and lots of hugs and high-fives!
