Map and Lap

Today we went to see Jalen in his schools' 'Map and Lap'. They had to get sponsors to raise money to buy equipment for the classrooms. They then had to answer questions - either about Australia or the world. For every question they got right they got a point. They then had an hour to walk/run around the oval. For every lap they did they got another point. They could get sponsors to either donate some money or pay them an amount per point. The class that raises the most amount of money wins a pizza lunch, as well as a movie afternoon including a DVD of their choice plus all the popcorn and drinks they can eat.

Harri was so excited to go and watch and Jay's teacher told Harri he could join in if he wanted. He didn't hesitate to run out and grab Jay's hand and ran with him.

It is such a beautiful, warm sunny Spring-like day (can't wait for SPRING!!!!). Jay's teacher kept commenting on how much Harri loves school and how Jay and Harri get along so well. She hasn't seen them at home when they are arguing! :)

The teachers had fun clucking over Kobe.
