Elli and Janie came home one day recently all excited about the “Big Game” at recess. Apparently, the 1st grade boys had formed a football team, aka the Tigers, and had asked the girls in their class to be cheerleaders. They slapped a cheer together (Called the ice cream stand) and couldn’t have been more proud. Janie cheered from the sidelines (For her sister) and after the cheer, ran over and gave her famous sister a big hug. When we asked Elli who the Tigers played, she said, “I don’t know!”
So, as the search began for a site for their first official game, I thought it would be fun to have it over Spring Break at the field on our street. We ate hot dogs, watched the “Cheer” and tried to figure out if there was actually a game going on. It was a huge success!
