Field Day




Doesn't tug-of-war bring out the competitiveness in everyone??

There is a homeschool mom and daughter here in Cincinnati that organize a home school field day every spring. It was Ben's second year participating and Lauren's first. The morning was spent in individual events, competing against your own age group. In the afternoon, it was the team event, which was amazing! Each team had members from kindergarten through 12th grade, and it was wonderful to see the teamwork--watching those big senior guys carry the little kindergartener's through the obstacle course, lifting them up to reach the basketball goal...my SIL Rachel says it's one of those things that reminds you as to why you homeschool. I have to agree! Lauren had an amazing buddy in Ben, the senior on her team. Our Ben was his usual competitive self, and did a great job. His team placed third in the team events. Fun day!
