Two Days Ago

From Daddy: One day in the Spring, near the end of the school year, is Field Day for his elementary school. All kids converge to Sunset Rec Center, gather and snack, and then rotate to various activity stations. There seemed to be seven or eight stations, and each class played at four of them. His class had a basketball challenge…
…a flag ball-capture challenge against another third-grade class (which his class won three times in a row; I’m not sure why the other class had no success)…
…a game of tag where kids would run across an open field to safe bases, avoiding being tagged by some adults, and finally a team challenge shooting bouncey balls into trash cans from various spots.
The main event were relay races simulating a Dragon Boat. The winner of the third-grace Dragon Boat race…
…was his class!
What a fun day!
Afterward, we had an impromptu video game play date and pizza dinner plus ice cream dessert with friends!
From Daddy: Today was the final of six sessions in our current run of basketball with Legarza. (Click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yvia3HhqcDE to watch shooting practice. Click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkmPF8Bs2C4 to watch the game.
It was great! We almost decided to take a hiatus, but a friend almost joined and we enrolled. The friend was not unable to join after all, but we’re glad that we did. He had a great time. Thanks coaches!
Three Weeks Ago
There was no basketball two weeks ago due to Easter Sunday. Click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtWPZ3JCCaw to watch defensive practice. He was the only kid to steal from the coach! Click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SydmQ61DuNo to watch the game.
From Daddy: He had a great and busy weekend! Saturday morning began with Aikido class (click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oPzp4hzC5k to watch a bit).
Afterward, we ran an errand at Best Buy and then played in Golden Gate Park at a picnic/party thrown by his before and afterschool care program.

That evening, Nick came over to take him to enjoy Boss Baby and dinner. That was his favorite part. Meanwhile, we attended him school’s dinner auction fundraiser. Cheers to his classroom project below (or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QohcwM6QhQg!
On Sunday, he had his final basketball session of the season and a playdate with a friend.
From Daddy: Above is a video of this morning’s Easter Egg Hunt!
At the beginning of the video below, he explains to the Reverend Jenna Meyers about looking for the last eggs:
From Daddy: Today, I chaperoned a field trip with the boy’s third-grade class to the Hyde Street Pier! I don’t think that I’d been there since I was in the third grade! Thanks to my group of kids whom I named “Team P-P-A-P,” a favorite song of the boy and his peers.
Before school, we had a great breakfast with Uncle Albert. (Thanks for buying, Uncle Albert!) Above is a video that the boy took with my phone
Earlier This Week
