Field Day

Today was our local homeschool group's field day. The Teen Group, of which my daughters are members, have been planning for months for this day in the park. They organized an obstacle course, games and activities for the younger children.

Each year, I marvel that these young adults put so much effort and care into planning the day. I am uplifted by the interaction of young people who will soon be parents bending over to help a small child. I am encouraged as all ages laugh and run together. I laugh as a few adults, including moi, who managed to fall on my face out of the tires, try to show that they're game, too.

I considered myself blessed to be surrounded by such children, but also women that are willing to look a little silly to have some fun with their children. Here is Marilyn, organizer of the Teen Group, not looking silly but handling the course quite competently. Her score, however, couldn't touch the time of this six year old.

Great pictures! Thanks again for being the official Field Day photographer! Now you realize, I would have done Lauren's obstacle course, but was afraid of a repeat of "Winnie the Pooh" being stuck in Rabbit's house while going through the bales of hay.
