Kickball Birthday

07 Apr

This year at school, I’ve been playing kickball at almost every recess. Naturally, it made sense to have a kickball birthday party.

I’ve never had an outdoor party because of the potential for bad weather – I promised my mom that we wouldn’t care if it rained. Even though it was 70 degrees and sunny last week, the forecast called for hail yesterday.

Well, what happens when you take 22 boys, suit them up for rain and go outside and play? An awesome good time.

First we split into the blue and green teams:



Then luckily, no one was using the tennis courts, so we could play there.



I was captain of the blue team



The best thing is that almost everyone could make it to the party and I feel like one of the luckiest kids in the world to have so many friends:


Here’s the happy birthday song if you can believe it:

    That was so fun! It was crazy with all those boys!!!! I have a sneaking suspicion that this is only the beginning for crazy boyish fun birthdays in our future! Oh.. In the video… The part where Annie hugs Ben after he blows out the candles.. Priceless… Heart hurts in a good way kinda moment!

    You are a brave family! I bet they all slept great that night after they peeled off their wet clothes and washed the color out of their hair and faces! Great idea for a party and their singing! Ah, the heavenly choir of angels must have been green with envy!
