Kindergarten Olympics--a much anticipated Catlin Gabel spring event--was a success! Kaleia Rush enjoyed each of her events, ending the day with a celebratory popsicle. During the opening ceremonies and after, Kaleia proudly waved her flag of hearts and stars, and symbols of her entire family, including dogs Trudy and Otis.
Kaleia excelled at balancing.
She was a confident jumper.
Kaleia loved the hurdles--just like her grandpa! Also like her grandpa, her tongue was visible during every event.
Catching and Throwing on the other hand were quite a challenge. A generous 4-grade judge made some accommodations for her and her partner allowing the games to continue.
No one quite understood the dress-up relay.
Finally, Kaleia made one lap around the track right as the whistle blew.
It was a perfect day with kindergarten friends,
with undivided attention from her parents, and a gold medal!
