May Day Celebration

Tonight we participated in the local May Day celebration. It is held in a local park by a group of artists. A few other local homeschoolers make it as well. Brother is getting old enough now that he is really curious about what the older kids are doing. This year he participated in a Tug Of War and a Three Legged Race. We are a competition free family, so I was interested to see how he was going to react to a determination being made of who is the winner and loser. He didn't seem to notice and had fun even though they were last in the three legged race and the boys kept getting pulled over by the girls in the Tug Of War. The most important thing is that they have fun, and I don't think he realized he was supposed to be disappointed.  

We made tissue paper butterflies and attached them to sticks for the children to play with. And I had brought a play silk which turned into a parachute. We are already looking forward to next year!
