They had a good crowd. Making lots of noise helps draw attention.

The parents pulled together and got the makings for the round tables and shields and princess hats.
Several dads help assemble the castle front on the tent tower and all.
Yours truly wanted to ensure we put it over the top and so I dressed as the Court Jester. We even had a trumpet (actually it was a trombone) to announce the arrival of the Newton's Knights!
The kids enjoyed it so it was all worth it.
I did cart wheels down the field with all the kids in the class which drew a laugh from all the teams.
I got to walk with the team for the opening parade.
Hannah and Elizabeth having a good time!
Hannah taking a break. It was hot and there was a lot going on.
So after sitting for a little bit, Hannah and all the others are back up and jumping around.
One of the final events of the day is the tug of war. As you can tell from Hannah's expression, I don't think the team she was on was expected to win.
The day ended with some very tired kids!

And of course, at the end, they all had to Cut Loose with a little Footloose!

Patrick had his first band concert this past week. He did a great job! He is playing the trombone which his dad played and his Grandpa Ray played. The fifth grade performed several pieces and is doing remarkably well for the short time they have been together.
Now the bad News!!!!!
Because of our busy schedules, I left the camera sitting on the desk at home and nobody went home prior to the concert. I came straight from work and JoAnna from all the other activities with the kids. I usually carry the camera but had downloaded some pictures and hadn't put it back in my bag, and so was unable to take pictures or video tape.
