"On your mark...get set...GO!"

It has reached the time of the year where we are on the downward stretch...the kids are ready for summer, and the teachers are even more ready for summer. Friday was field day. For those of you who have never experienced a field day it is a rather large event where kids essentially take the day off and get to enjoy a beautiful day outdoors, full of activities and fun.

As a "SPED" teacher (special education) I had the "privilege" of running one of the activities with a few parent volunteers. There were water activities, the javelin throw, soccer toss, tug of war, etc...my station was the 50 yard dash. I tried to capture some pictures of the event, but all of my favorite pictures are pictures of my students and close-ups. I'm not sure what the rules are of sharing pictures of students, so I am going to err on the side of caution and show one that I took from a distance.

Of course...for anyone who knows me very well...knows a day in the sun=sunburn. At noon, when we had our lunch break, I evaluated and thought, "Wow, I'm not even pink, I don't need sunscreen!" The afternoon sun unfortunately was a little brighter and hotter, and left it's mark. None the less...a fun day was had a by all.

Hi Liz - I remember "field day's" when I was in Elementary school. They were a highlight of the year, and it helped knowing that our summer break was about to commence. I hope you had loads of fun with the kiddos!
