Last week was field day with our homeschool group. There was a great turn out with about 70+ people there and the kids had loads of fun playing the typical potato sack races, three legged races, relays, tug of wars, jump rope competition etc. We were also thankful for lovely weather in the 80's since the day before had been a record setting 100 degrees. Pregnant women do not like 100 degree weather in case you were wondering.
Poor Grace is quite a bit on the short side for her age so she had to try really hard to keep up in some of these races.
But she made up for it during the wheelbarrow race due to being lighter and stronger from all those push-ups during Tae-Kwon-Do lessons.
Naomi was speedster and very competitive I found out. She is a bundle of energy and just keeps going and going.
One of the things I loved about the day was watching the older kids buddy up with the younger kids on their team to help them compete in the events. I don't know what they do in public school for field day but I am pretty sure that the 6th graders aren't helping with the kindergarteners. I could be wrong though. I appreciate how homeschooling encourages kids to co-operate and get along with kids of various ages and not just their own grade. They really appear to enjoy it too.
