Pique-nique à Winslow Park

All the school went to have a picnic at Winslow Park on Monday September 14, 2009. We invited the school parents and were happy some could join us for this get-together. Mr.Ring gave us a ride in the big blue bus. When we arrived we split into two groups: Pre-K to 1st grade and 2nd to 7th grade. The first group played all kinds of games: la tomate ('the tomato' ball game), le facteur ('the mailman') and we played on the park's games. The older group went to explore the park's trails.
We all had lunch together. Mary-Lou had prepared us a delicious meal. We had baked beans, pasta salad, burgers and hot dogs, corn on the cob and watermelon for dessert.
The first group then went back to school to take a nap or read stories. The 2nd to 7th grade group stayed a little longer to play 'le jeu du drapeau', the flag game. This is a strategic game: you need to find ways to take other teams' flag while protecting your own. This was a lot of fun.
We all had a wonderful day!
