Water Balloons, Shaving Cream, Tug of War, Popsicles .... A whole school day dedicated to fun. Did you ever have "Field Day" as a kid? I never did. We had "Track and Field Day" which was a serious, grade school olympic-type competition, but never a complete "fun" field day. Track and Field Day came with mandatory participation. I tried to avoid any event that involved running. Instead, I somehow managed to break the girl's grade school record on my first ever attempt at a discus throw. Beginners Luck I tell you! I guess I have more strength than speed. It's the only Track and Field medal I have ever received. I have no desire to ever try it again.
In case you are wondering who ended up winning the Tug of War pictured here, it was Arielle's team. Of course, after winning, she immediately joined the losers in the shaving cream pile up. I'm so glad that sort of thing is fun when you're only four feet tall!
