Regatta

Saturday was the annual Regatta at Maria Montessori School. The school is in Harbor Town on Mud Island. It is a beautiful campus overlooking the water of the marina. They have canoe races and Team Dixon, made up of Brain, Shannon, and Max came in second! Yeah!
It was a beautiful day, made even more special because all of my family was there...Brian, Shan, Max, Kev, Amy, Lily and Forrest. We put our quilt down on the grass and ate grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. The little ones played all the games where everyone is a winner of prizes. They had face painting and Lily and Forrest had their hair painted. There was mighty good music to be listened to while we all lounged on the grass. I was so happy as I lay on the quilt, looking up through the trees, and and !!! seeing Lily and Max in those trees. Wait a minute, how did they get up there??? Those two had so much fun climbing trees and then yelling for meme to get them down.

I enjoy wandering around Max's school. They have gardens where they grow vegetables and herbs, then harvest them and use them in meals. They have a shop where Mr. Fletcher gets their assistance in making different projects. Max even helped build the barn. Yes, they even have a barn. So far, they haven't raised any little animals. Oh, I forgot about the cat that lives there. He wanders around the classroom doing his own thing.

I had so much fun, I can't wait till next year.

Sounds like such a nice day - nothing like little kids and tree climbing.
